Pheme




Posted on facebook, December 30, 2013:

I propose the word "pheme" to mean "stories presented as fact, which are spread around the internet, which turn out to be exaggerated, inflated, unsupported, hoaxes, or just plain false." It's basically a portmanteau of "false" and "meme," or "fake" and "meme," but it also happens to be spelled the same as Pheme, the Greek goddess of rumor.
