Hey Fellow Community members,
I have been recently reading about fake news and how it is turning out to be the biggest issue we have in our world today.
Fake news doesn’t seem to be the issue with only countries with low-literacy rates, even European countries and United States, which have very high literacy rates are suffering from this.
In my country i.e India, i observe how Social Media Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Whatsapp are being used to circulate various superstitious beliefs, which seem to be dangerous, as well as, news from unknown sites which are fake. Even my classmates and other friends tend to believe many of the fake news’ as true.
How can my skill as a web developer be useful in fight against fake news?
Will be pleased to hear your views on how technology can help in eradicating fake news ?
Are there any current technologies available against fake news?
And one last thing, how does someone identify between a news which is true and one which is fake?
P.S.: forgive me if you found writing style bad
