Be careful what you say on social media…

The old style of news media – TV, radio and the press – has been rapidly replaced by up-to-the-minute reports on the Internet … email … Facebook … and other social media.

Sometimes the stories are distorted … or even made up…

Now more than ever, we need to be careful about what we read – and what we post and repost on social media.

Here are 3 principles of honesty and integrity we should follow:

  1. Always tell the truth … and only rely on news sources which do the same.
  2. Always fact-check the stories you read. Go to to get the latest false, potentially false or true emails, posts and news stories.
  3. Make sure people can trust what they receive from you on social media.

If everyone would follow these principles – including news journalists – there would be much less misinformation circulating around the internet and social media.
