How can we identify fake information?

In the modern world it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish true facts from false information. However, it is the duty of every person to constantly work on a culture of information consumption.

If you follow simple recommendations and precautions, you can identify fake information:

  1. Check the source. The article should indicate the sources of information. You shouldn’t trust "anonymous sources", "inner circle" and "former employees who wished to remain anonymous."
  2. Check the dates, geographical positions and other news related to the described situation. If a lot of inconsistencies are presented it means that the article contains hardly any true information.
  3. Do not judge an article by title. Frequently the title information does not match the text.

The specialists of the Anti-fake news Investigation Agency launching by the Europe Business Assembly (EBA) are always ready to help you in fighting against fake information.
