Fake news seems to be taking the world by storm. People are coming up with concocted news in a bid to increase the followers they have online. The unfortunate thing is that people may end up believing the news they hear and act on it. The unfortunate result is that they may end up getting hurt.
So how do you differentiate the real from the fake? Since there is a really thin line between the real and fake, you should make sure to follow accredited news channels. These ones have more to lose if they give false news so they double check their news before sending it out. Also you need not be in a hurry to spread any news which has fallen into your hands. Apologizing later on for sending wrong information is damaging to your reputation.
