How to make sure your information is credible
The web is increasingly driving confusion on how, when, and where to vote.
Below are some tips from AARP about how to spot fake information:
- Do a web search for the writer's name with “journalist” or “writer” to the search. The writer's articles should appear in the search results, along with a LinkedIn profile or a verified Twitter account. You'll tell quickly if this author has credibility.
- 70% of people only read the headline of articles they share. Read the whole story before liking it or sharing it.
- A quick search of the article's sources can reveal whether people, studies, surveys, or reports have political or business affiliations.
