Jace, I'm so happy you're here! All my friends have been warning me about false information on social media. I'm so worried. But how can I tell what's false on my newsfeed?
I understand you're worried. Sometimes it's not easy but if you check a few things, you will be able to tell what's false.
This is so helpful! Thank you Jace.
See, these are the important things you need to check: the source, pictures or videos and the URL.
Check the source:New profiles and few followers should create doubt.Look at past postings: Are they consistent in content?Use search engine to search for headline and date to see if other sources have reported on the incident.Pictures and videos:Check for features confirming the place where it was supposedly made.Search engines offer a reversed search option to see where the picture has been used before.Websites:Sometimes fake websites appear in the design of a known media sources but add hyphens or a different ending like .net to the URL.
