We are keeping our traditions alive – ReputationTime Meetups where we meet to discuss interesting topics, network and learn something new, will be held each month prior to the conference on May 12.
The principle remains the same – no dashboards, no presentations, just people who meet during lunch-time to share their opinions. And of course network, because we know that networking is the best part of the conference. Why wait till May 12? Mark your calendars – the next meetup will be held on March 31.
Here’s a short overview on the discussed tips on how to avoid and recognise fake news:
- Try to avoid using social media as a reliable news source.
- Double-check the information. If the headline is too dramatic, probably the news is fake.
- Always read the whole articles.
- Use image / video reverse search.
- Check and compare facts with other media sources.
- Check the ownership structure of the media – who are the owners, who runs the editorial board, is there a contact form?
- Talk to others, discuss the media agenda with your friends, colleagues, other opinion leaders. Try to listen to other opinions and then compare them.
- Invest your time in developing your media literacy and critical thinking.
