Listen to BBC Trending's latest programme or download the podcast. This week:

India: The case of Roji Roy.

How a nursing student who took her own life in Kerala, south India, has become a symbol in a fight against corporate India and the "ruling class". Following her death at the beginning of November, Keralites began to turn against the mainstream media. They protested that Roji Roy's death hadn't been covered due to corporate interests. Thousands have united behind the 'Justice for Roji Roy' campaign on Facebook, with over 50 pages now dedicated to her.

Syria: The 'hero boy' hoax.

A recent video that appeared to show the grainy images of a boy going to the rescue of a little girl during a shoot out in a street in Syria gained millions of views and was reported as seemingly real by media outlets all around the world.

As BBC Trending first reported, it turned out to be staged by film makers from Norway. They had filmed it in Malta using actors. On our radio programme, we look into the consequences of what happened: speaking to a Syrian blogger who says it's blighted citizen journalism, and discussing whether authenticity is something you can ever really expect on the internet.
