Welcome to the next Guidepost in our #KnowPeaceOnline campaign, #KnowYourResponsibility.
In today's guidepost, the fifth in our six-part series, Rev. Mike Denton tells a story — when a friend tried to help him out, but with bad information.
Misinformation online can be like that. Well-meaning people pass along flawed information.
The challenge is that false information is more popular than true information online. The people who create these false narratives know it. Then our friends, family members and others distribute it.
It’s up to us to disrupt these social media con jobs whenever we can. If you find out that you accidentally shared false information, correct it, share the information you’ve learned, and delete it as soon as possible. Use the tools from #knowyourfacts.
Social media is a powerful tool. It’s up to us to use it responsibly.
