Be careful what you say on social media…
The old style of news media – TV, radio and the press – has been rapidly replaced by up-to-the-minute reports on the Internet … email … Facebook … and other social media.
Sometimes the stories are distorted … or even made up…
Now more than ever, we need to be careful about what we read – and what we post and repost on social media.
Here are 3 principles of honesty and integrity we should follow:
- Always tell the truth … and only rely on news sources which do the same.
- Always fact-check the stories you read. Go to truthorfiction.com to get the latest false, potentially false or true emails, posts and news stories.
- Make sure people can trust what they receive from you on social media.
If everyone would follow these principles – including news journalists – there would be much less misinformation circulating around the internet and social media.
