EternalFC among the skeptic hubs. Phase diagrams that show the densities of Believers and Fact Checkers at equilibrium obtained by simulations of the model in a network of N=1000 nodes, formed by two communities of 500 agents associated with different values of α: the gullible (αgu=0.8) and the skeptic (αsk=0.3). The fixed parameters are β=0.5 and pf=0.1. Each cell (h,ρ) corresponds to the averaged value of the relative density over 20 simulations with hF0 eternal Fact Checkers (chosen among the highest degree nodes in the skeptic community) and ρM rewiring trials, where h,ρ[0,1]
