Globalisation is changing the way we live and work. Our new connectedness means we are no longer living in the stone age (or remote era). For that reason, we have gotten rid of the old ways of consuming news, entertainment and reports of current events. Now, there are more sophisticated and contemporary ways of consuming news from all around the globe. We’ve gone from watching the news on TV at 6 pm to using cool popsockets to consume news on our phone wherever we are. But how can you keep up with the news from that many sources? And how can you know what news sources are 100 per cent genuine? Of course, you can never be sure of this. However, you probably knew that already. On the other hand, though, there is a lot of fake news spread all over the internet – so we need to be very careful. Due to these fake news articles, you can witness chaos and bedlam everywhere. It is our fault, as a society, as we are the ones who originated the new-fangled sources of news and updates. And it is up to us to overcome this issue in order to get rid of chaos and anarchy.
It does not mean that we have to leave behind all the modern means of consuming news and updates. But we need to learn how best to use these technologies. So, to get rid of the irreversible consequences, what you have to do is as follows:
- Make use of social media applications in a positive manner. Ignore the rubbish and believe only in the fact-checked news.
- Create a differentiation line between the actual “fact” and an “opinion”.
- Make yourself a frequent user of such authentic applications that prohibits the publication of news that create chaos and confusion.
- Install applications in your phone that are designed to provide you with only the most genuine and authentic updates.
