Take news with a pinch of salt

好討厭各類型的誇張失實fake news,唯恐天下不亂,唯恐社會還不夠分化。

大家不要懶、不要見到什麼(特別是favor自己立場的版本)就信什麼、不要把還沒核實的資訊share出去、不要react得太快、不要見到煽情的圖文就立刻火遮眼、不要見到設計整齊的文宣就誤以為內容必定屬實、不要被斷章取義的內容煽動、不要見到「冇頭冇尾」的片段就妄下定論。

幫幫忙,這種時勢更必須uphold fact check 「求真」精神。有時只需要用3秒google一下,廢內容就會不攻自破。

見到不少(我以為)聰明 or are least educated enough 的同事/舊同學都有試過在fb share過假新聞。 藍藍黃黃皆有。how dumb!

This is why Whatsapp的forward function只限於5人之內。假消息的威力可以很強大。妖言可以成功惑眾,你我也有責任。

Half-truth is not truth!
