Everyone needs to start paying attention to all they’re social media accounts, adding extra security measures because attackers are on a move to control or make changes to those accounts that they hack. Monitoring your accounts is vital for your own safety.
What do we consider fake news?
Fake news is categorized as false, misleading information. The advantage of having access to the world-wide web, has given people the freedom to spread that false information. This type of act causes confusion, breaks apart communities. It moves hatred to a new level. Our society has been manipulated by mainstream media. News outlets are Politically divided. On top of the false information, we live among people who enjoy doing major harm by re-posting or sharing these false information via social media. One thing is for sure here. Nobody likes to cross reference what they read!
Are we being manipulated on purpose by a higher entity? This may seem so in my perspective because some information that I have come across were misleading. Social Media is a very dangerous platform to be spreading misleading information. Many groups will argue left over right without any true facts. Our communities need to see and hear the real truth behind what is going on. Lies after lies will just cause more hatred.
The poor has been ignored, the elderly has well. Children are left in total darkness. Suicide among adults, children are on the rise. All because of what is spread via social media. The News outlets need to step up they’re game and start reporting real news, without misleading the public.
This brings up a concern about blogging. Should bloggers start verifying the local news, reporting what is real information? That is another topic to consider here. It is time for people to wake up and start cross referencing information. STOP READING FAKE NEWS!
I’m not sure what is going on with WordPress but the Sharing option will not share any post. It keeps disconnecting from all the available accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Google+). These accounts are acting up lately. I have to reconnect every time that I log into WordPress. Google+ keeps changing my settings from Public to private as well. Technical issues should be a priority for these companies if they want to keep a steady flow of income and clients. I am not upset but concerned at how many times I’ve been disconnected from sharing my post. Enough is Enough!! I am sure that this can be fixed as soon as possible. Please bring back the sharing option to normal.
