  • The proliferation of fake news in the internet

    One newspaper columnist said that the proliferation of fake news and false information is getting to be alarming. It's not exactly about the news itself but the temerity of the public to spread fake news and false information. It is very prevalent in social media that even Facebook has issued a declaration on getting strict with fake news. Do you have an idea why people in social media share such news even without verifying it? A few weeks ago I received a private message in Facebook that there is a bomb threat by terrorists according to the police. At the bottom of the message was the note - share this to save lives. On that night, I saw the evening where the police chief belied that rumor and requested the public not to spread the lie.
