As the world ivolves and changes due to the explosion of technology, so does the way humans intellectually view information. Today’s news media has overemphasized the meaning of fake news; display all kinds of false information presented as factual information. This tends to spread on the internet and in the media. Fake news has taken over the world, with the rise of satirical and sketch news, financial incentives to spread true fake news, and keep the news alive.

One of the main effects of fake news is that it causes people to misbehave or spread false information based on incorrect information. There are several ways to deal with the problem of fake news.

One way to solve the problem is by creating public awareness about fake news

When people are aware of fake news and are always alert about illegitimate news and sources, they will not share fake information. Making people aware of fake news can help them learn news sources on social networks, check them from the reliable and the fake.

Another thing you can do is do some extra research on the best way to tackle the fake news problem on social media.
