Spot and Speak Out: Address the Circulation of Fake News
This petition had 67 supporters
With the expansion of the media and technology, people tend to circulate their lives mostly in social media. Social media is the epicentre of misleading information for anyone can create a blog, post youtube video or send out a tweet and well-known media outlets no longer have a lock on creating or distributing the news. It has become a major influence to the youth resulting into a fast spreading exchange of communication and information. People easily connect and believe on what they have read and watch regardless if the source was reliable or not. One example would be the news regarding the fake rice that was rumored to have entered the Philippine market, in which the issue spread like a wildfire.
As a result, our campaign primarily focuses to address the circulation of fake news on the internet to prevent an individual to be victimized and harmed. People can lose reputation, jobs, money, health and safety from believing on fake news. This campaign is to engage everyone to end the prevalence of fake news being spread in different social media plat forms. We are encouraging people to speak out and address wherein they could prevent themselves from being a victim of these hoaxes. Fake news is happening today and we are determined to take action to stop it. Awareness is the key to open the eyes of people to see nothing but the fact and the truth only.
We believe that this is the solution for deception, we break your own news.
