What is the meaning of the word factoid?
Norman Mailer introduced the word factoid in his 1973 book Marilyn. He invented it by combining the word fact with -oid, a scientific suffix that means “resembling but not identical to.” In other words, it’s something that looks like a fact, but isn’t. Factoids are built from rumours and used by irresponsible journalists to create a story when none exists.
