Home page Findings Conclusion and sources


Fake news a very big problem that should be taken seriously because of the challenges it brings such as the effect it has on media itself, social networks and the fact that people are losing trust in news sources or are second guessing the information they receive on a daily basis because of how many fake news is being spread. There is no permanent solution to fake news, because it is virtually impossible to eliminate the platforms on which it is being spread (the internet and social media), because people have become so attached to these platforms. There are solutions that will however lessen fake news/the effect of fake news such as learning how to recognize fake news and using fact checking sites. Reporting and flagging tools in programs such as Facebook can also be used to lessen fake news. Critical thinking is an important skill to learn and people should educate everyone they know in order to not be victims of fake news.
