How to address the information

googleHN“Social media is good for helping communication but very bad for human mental development.”

Someone advised me on how to address the information that sometimes or often false, and below is his advice.

Don’t be too trusting and bother with the information we receive, especially information about politics, which is released by the mass media and also social media. It may be engineered, modified, or exaggerated following the desires and goals of the news producer. If we want to understand, we need to review the information in full and in detail. Do in-depth research. If not, ignore the news.

Social media like Facebook, Twitter, and others only make us cowards. People can hide behind their comments. Lies are also easy to do. The best way to reduce lying is to meet face to face and only a few opportunities to lying.
