Having to gather information, building up trust
Having the world wide web is a wonderful origin, but the things that are seen on there should not be heard, it goes alongside the way of applying memorable headlines acting as ‘Celebrity caught taking drugs while pregnant’ or ‘The United States seen President caught having an interaction with somebody’ whatever captures the eye of the viewers and cause them to get involved and read more about the article whether or not it is real or fake. On the website ‘What is fake news’ posted on the telegraph, it is quoted ‘Headlines can seem suspicious to the point of being silly, making it tempting to be fake news’ (Community, 2017).Fake news is completely made up and it is set up to lie to the readers, it was not something that people used previously , but now it’s seen as a big deal. Before the internet came into play, it was hard to gather information, building up trust took a very long time, plus there was simple examples as what came across as news in media. The second that social media came towards the light it tore down the walls so that it blocked the fake news against spreading around, it has set up anyone and everyone to create and make up stories as they please. The telegraph mentions that ‘Facebook and Twitter allowed people to share out information on a much greater scale than ever before, in short the barriers to creating fake news have need undone’ (Titcomb, 2017). The goal of fake news is to get the audience to feel aghast and make them interpret what they have just read, and with that it causes them to share what they had just read on Facebook, Twitter and any type of communal aspect, without having a second thought about it, the process of this will make people accept what has been shared continues to be a good idea, the cycle goes on and on to the point where people could think that it won’t end, until a big enough audience decides whether to take on what they read or label it as fake news.
An example of one of a fake news story is about the president Donald Trump who was accused of being linked to a scandal involving leaked documents. A report that involved Donald Trump’s son who allegedly got an email giving him full access to the jittery democratic emails from wikileaks, but in fact what had happened was members of Trump’s campaign had received an email about the documents reporting on the intital date, and was then confirmed by two sources that it was not true.
