With just a tap on one’s computer, tablet, or mobile phone, one can access millions of information anytime, anywhere. But how can people be sure that the information accessed is true? Accurate? Along with the plethora of genuine information is the proliferation of fake news/information/scams? How can we prevent becoming victims of fake news and scams that can have strong impact in our lives and in our community?
