Informing ourselves

According to a 2016 Pew Research Center survey, 23% of people admit to having shared a fake news story on Facebook, be it on purpose or unknowingly.

People regularly share stories based only on headlines. Five or six words are not enough to tell the entire story.

We tend to read the news that confirms what we already believe, or we read news from a single outlet.

According to psychiatrist M.Katherine Shear, many people feel bogged down by the news. 22% of subjects in a 2015 study experienced symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder after viewing violent images on social media.
