Factoid is a neologism originally described by Norman Mailer in 1974 which describes a questionable or spurious (unverified, false, or fabricated) statement presented as a fact, but without supporting evidence. Over time and common usage, factoid has assumed other meanings, particularly being used to describe a brief or trivial item of news or information.
