Whether it is through our social media, the latest Tiktok or post on “X” (formally Twitter), it is difficult to know if we are reading or watching the truth. Fake-news, “Photoshopped” images and cleverly edited videos are often used as DISINFORMATION to make us believe a lie.
It is always worth checking reliable fact-check sites to work out what is true and what is fiction. Our viewpoints and opinions are shaped by the information we have access to.
