OMG! Have you seen this post on Facebook, it says that coronavirus is just a hoax, and it is the way of the government to scare the people.
No Mom, I haven't. But, I think we shouldn't believe quickly everything we saw on the internet.
What I am trying to say is, before we believe everything we saw on the internet, it is necessary to fact-check and verifies it first so that we could say that it is true.
What do you mean? You don't think that it is true? This is not going to be posted on Facebook if it isn't true.
Mom, that is very dangerous! You shouldn't that again.
What? I've been sharing a lot of articles and news before without fact-checking and verifying the sources because it all seems legit.
Mom, it is a big deal. You may cause panic to people and spread misinformation.
It is not that big deal. I mean, my Facebook friends are doing that as well.
I know, Mom. I know that your intentions are good, but maybe next time, you should evaluate the information that you will share.
Oh, God! I didn't know. I just wanted to share information to spread awareness.
In school, we are thought and equipped with skills with being information literate. We have learned that being smart with identifying fake news is crucial, especially that fake news is prevalent on the internet.
