OPEN Talk Episode #8: “Media Literacy: Iwasan maging biktima ng fake news ”
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?
