Fake News

Home page Basics Findings Conclusion


Through the research I did, there is various ways to react and identify fake news, by asking questions to see if it is real and by fact checking the news on a website like Africa check. Reacting on fake news depends on the persons personal ideal, like whether the person wants to warn their families and friends not to believe the news, or if the person wants to report the news as being fake. The most important fact is that the person should know the truth. Out of all my responses we can see that most people do not find it too easy to spot fake news, that most people do not fact-check their news and that most people believe fake news impacts our countries politics the most. Therefore, it is clear that awareness should be made on fake news as a whole.
