Hey. May we make a recommendation? This is when we point you toward something - anything - that isn't ours, but is awesome.
Check out Brian Stelter's blog he wrote Monday about the problem with fake news spreading quickly on social media. He's a former New York Times guy who now reports for CNN.
The blog title is "The Plague of Fake News is Getting Worse - Here's How to Protect Yourself."
He discusses how easy it is for false information to spread on Twitter and Facebook. He gives this example:
"Look no further than Donald Trump's Twitter account. Trump claimed Sunday morning that 'Twitter, Google and Facebook are burying the FBI criminal investigation of Clinton.' Not only was there no proof of this, but it was pretty easy to disprove."
Stelter comes up with a solution. A simple one.
Triple check your sources before you share a story.
Don't just blindly share something, even if it comes from what you think is reputable source.
Don't be a part of the problem.
