Are We All Fake News?


Do you use Facebook? Yeah, probably. Users in Facebook show their ideal persona, not their real self. This is why in essence, everything you see on Facebook is fake news. “My husband is great”? Probably fake news. “I only read the New York Times during the weekend”, yep, you don’t, fake news.

Living in the USA, I am pretty tired of fake news, and I don’t want to spend any of my time looking at a news feed that is showing me B.S. Should I just retired Facebook because of this? Maybe. Facebook hasn’t shown real interest on correcting this, as they continue to claim that they are not a media company but a platform, while sending their lawyers and not their executive team to Congress to answer questions.

Thinking about it even more now, yeah, Facebook: you are dead to me.
