Resumen

This investigation aims to verify what kind of contents was most shared in WhatsApp family groups during the 2018 Brazilian presidential campaign and which percentage contained false information. The relevance of this study is justified because WhatsApp is a closed app and during the campaign was used as a disinformation channel. There was undertaken a quantitative analysis of 472 publications shared in ten groups. The access to this data was possible thanks to the cooperation of citizens who responded to our invitation to participate in the research. The findings show that image with text still corresponds to the most disseminated content in the groups and that 60% of said publications contained false or partially false information. The discoveries corroborate the existence of a circle of disinformation within WhatsApp users.
