Misinformation is omnipresent online and some people are making a very profitable business out of it.
Misinformers will use the social media platform as a way to redirect you to their webpage where they offer diverse products or subscriptions.
Misinformation is not a one person job, quite the opposite. Misinformers collaborate together and promote each other’s work, all to extend their reach and make more money.
Misinformation is a well organized web and falling for it means nothing about your intelligence. It takes a lot of time, energy and expertise to see the truth through that intricate network. All things we don’t always have a lot of. That’s why it is so important that you stop and think “Is this true?” before you share anything online.
