People are blasted information across multiple platforms and many of it has been found to be fake or ill sourced.

How many times have you personally been a direct or indirect victim of this miss information?

When you have to correct data and are literate of the correct information then you are able to make an accurate and proper judgement.

 

 

Forbes has written a good article about this subject and I encourage you to read it and become more literate about the information you take in every day to make your daily decisions.

    My tendency is not to believe much of what I read. I have seen instances where the news is not what the person reported on has said. There is a TV program that pursues events, spending weeks gathering information. Then there is a slot in a 1 hour show to present these. How can that be factual!

    A friend of mine used to work in the reporters, journalists and the like club. One fellow told her, ‘never let the facts ruin a good story’ and that is so true.

    Take everything with a grain of salt and look up real authorities to get the real low down.

    Your choice of literacy is a great choice for your website.

    Keep up the good work.
