To share, or not to share?
When we hear the term media literacy, our first association is with fake news. However rarely is anything in the world black or white. All sorts of methods are used to attract attention and send the desired message - scandalous headlines with kind of genuine news, noncorresponding video and tendentious photos, over-exaggerations and spreading rumors, unsubstantiated accenting of details, or the opposite, deliberately leaving out facts. News stories can become unreliable due to both carelessness, and deliberate action. With the help of social networks and other media it's easy to scare, make fun of, sow hatred, promote stereotypes, popularize pseudoscience, disguise advertisements and mislead in other ways.
With this test you can determine how well you can recognize such messages both on social media and news websites. They pollute the information space and it's not worth passing them on, which is why our question is - WILL YOU SHARE? If the message seems reliable and honestly formed, click YES. If you recognize any of the previously mentioned elements of deception and carelessness, click NO.
For each right answer you'll receive one point.
