Learning about fake news was really interesting to me, as I have always been told to look at multiple news outlets due to bias as well as for accuracy. The biggest takeaway from this article I had was the line that said, “Fake news and false rumors reach more people, penetrate deeper into the social network, and spread much faster than accurate stories.” I find this particularly evident in every part of my life, both through conversations with people and through social media. It reminds me of the game telephone, as many things get twisted in what people want to hear, and are far more different than the original term or phrase. Furthermore, it is not a bad idea to fact-check information.
