Help fight Fake News

Libraries are all about helping students consider their information choices, select appropriate resources and understand how to use information ethically.

You can help fight Fake News if you see a story on Facebook and you’re not sure it’s real you can report it >click on the top right hand corner of a post >select Report a post >I think it should be on Facebook>it’s a fake news story

Facebook is working with four news organizations/fact-checking groups: ABC News, Politifact, FactCheck, Snopes, as well as  The Associated Press to flag the story as “disputed by third-party fact-checkers.”
