The internet is a major enabler of talking trash, but perhaps some of this “information” is notable. There has been so much more opportunity for people to speak their mind and rather than be told, they are telling, listening and reciprocating, differing opinions and views, with the help of these symbols (all gathered from my personal social networks):
Now that the general public has power to speak their mind on issues, there’s the potential for the “real news” to be outed on their lies. Rather than a “one to many approach” as in most legacy media, a “many to many” approach on social networks allows for communication between millions of sources providing validation from all over the world creating power in numbers, which for large media corporations is highly intimidating.
The first screen clipping of a user run Facebook page with over 7 million likes, informs users of news, not mentioned on mainstream media, compared with CNN one of the biggest culprits of producing so called “fake news” which focuses on one sided views.
