Internet Savvy

We all have our guilty pleasures. Still, it's a good idea to be up on all the different warning signs of clickbait. Once you are able to recognize them for what they are, the choice to indulge is totally yours. What is crappy content to one person might be just what another person is looking for. Just don't take the stuff you see on the internet too seriously. This is the latest comic from Jeff Lovfers at Don't Hit Save.

I know a woman who says weird stuff, and I'll ask where she got that. "It was on Facebook." I told her you can't believe everything you read on Facebook. Another day, I mentioned something from a Facebook group, and she said, "I thought you didn't believe in Facebook..." What?

Facebook is a method of communication. Believing something just because it's on Facebook is like believing something because you heard it on the telephone. Facebook doesn't fact-check. Everything on Facebook came from somewhere else. You have to consider the source, and it's not Facebook.

I later found out this woman believed everything on TV, too. If the news aired someone's speech, she believed everything in the speech, because if it weren't true they wouldn't put it on television.
