MUCH BIGGER IMPACT

When the news gets to the social media it spreads quite quickly without knowing that the news is real or fake, so unless you don t know that its from a credible sources don t forward it. This will spread it more, because the people who are going to receive it from you will might think to share t with their friends as well.

Face book has been under fire for letting some Russian agencies to spread faux advertisement for political purposes. As the social network is a part of almost every single person, such posts have a bigger impact on the society than you can imagine.

Moreover its up to us to save our data and interactions. The internet is a quite big place full of scams and misinformation at  every corner, for finding credible articles and news we use our way for finding by going around the web pages and search engines, and we don t get caught up on untrue article.

As they say that everything you see on internet is not true, unless it is been posted by a credible news reporter.
