The role of motivation in willpower
Allowing misinformation to spread only makes it more likely for people to start believing it, so when you see someone stand up against a person for sharing misinformation, join in on the conversation.
People share things on social media because of their emotions mindlessly all the time. Those who view their accounts in an emotional mindset, mainly anger and anxiety are the culprits, are more likely to share misinformation than those with a rational state of mind.
Before sharing something online, consider the consequences of doing so and ask yourself whether the link you're sharing is true; has it been fact-checked?
Misinformation is shared quickly and without much thought to be conscious of your actions and your behaviors and control your impulses.
Every post you share is not only for yourself but it will be seen by other people. Make sure to double-check your sources with other contents that have low biases and high fact ratings in order to find sources you can actually deem trustworthy.
Research says that people who underestimate their biases are actually more vulnerable to being misled than those who acknowledge their biases.
There is a thing we call "confirmation bias" and this happened when a person is biased towards believing information that is already aligned with what they believe in may t be politically, religiously, or by ethnicity or nationality.
False information is shared by many people who intentionally want to mislead people, and many unaware people fall for this.
In order to avoid the further spread of misinformation, we should learn the tricks they use to manipulate us.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
