Information Online

Have you ever encounter ads that say something along like “Young Celebrities and How They Look Now” or “Does it Really Work.” Teenagers and kids get their news from Twitter, Facebook, and other social medias. Most of the time, they turn out to be false information. According to the study by Stanford, teenagers and kids are highly vulnerable to the news they encounter online. Stanford’s studies showed us that more than 3/4 of the students, who participated in the research, had a difficult time determining the credibility of a news post that they were shown. In conclusion, students should not believe everything they come across online due to the countless fake news out there.
