What happens when we increasingly rely on social media and the internet for nearly all our information? What information do we see,and what do we miss? How do we know if a picture or a tweet is genuine or truthful? And what can we do if we aren’t sure?

As users and consumers, we are no longer neutral or passive receivers of information. We can also be its main channels of distribution.
