Rule #1: Don’t trust everything you read on the internet
How many viral stories on social media do you read, share and comment on everyday? How bothered are you if they are real or not?
Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Understand the difference between opinions and facts. If there is a subject or controversy that interests you, dig a little deeper and not just believing from one single source. Stop sharing viral stories on social media that you don’t know the real truth behind it. By sharing fake news and misinformation on the internet, you may be complicit in spreading news that can be damaging, distressing and even dangerous to the people they target.
