What are the sources of fake news
Average rating: 3.93 of 5 with 355 votes.
Every day, millions of new videos, articles and posts appear on the Internet worldwide. But how do you know: is what you can see and read really true? Or is everything just fake? Instructions in three steps.
The internet was once celebrated as the most democratic medium. Everyone can post, comment and share things on an equal footing. But more and more news on the Internet - articles, pictures or videos - are falsified and manipulated. Nevertheless, they are often received completely uncritically and distributed millions of times. On the one hand, because the technical advances in image processing make it almost impossible to detect changes at all. On the other hand, because many users lack the criteria to differentiate between reputable and dubious sources and to assess the credibility of a message.
Questioning messages in three steps
But that's dangerous. Fakes, i.e. falsified information, should not only drive media attention in the form of clicks and likes. They are also an instrument used by cyber criminals and political agitators. Any Internet user could question the message with the help of three relatively simple steps:
- Source criticism
- Fact check
- Image research
So who is behind it, what is being said and is the picture correct? For more maturity on the Internet and the return of a critical awareness!
