Fact or Fiction?

Our ability to communicate around the world is getting more and more advanced every day. It is a lot easier now to get in touch with others from different countries then it was just a few years ago.  With the technology we have with smartphones almost anyone can be a journalist, with one picture, video or tweet we can now post information to the internet with one touch of a button. With the way, our media is evolving even the government uses social media to make some announcements. I feel that we still can not fully rely on social media for cold hard facts but it can give us some incite on what is happening in the moment. I think that with anything put on social media has to be triple checked before proven as real. It is very easy nowadays to make fake news posts and manufacture videos that look real but are not. I do not think that social media feeds are a reliable source for information.
