There are more reasons than ever before to question what we see online: whether it’s a news story with a surprising headline, a video that can’t possibly be real, a strange pop-up or a peculiar message from a friend or complete stranger.
While the internet is a great resource, it’s getting harder to tell who and what we can trust online. That puts all of us at a greater risk of trolls, hackers, deceptive advertisers, people spreading false information; encouraging bad behaviour online and of course; strangers that want to befriend us.
The good news? We can all learn how to identify trusted sources online, how to spot potentially fake websites/news/scams and how to deal with strangers who may not be who they say they are.
So many good things are possible because of the internet. It’s useful, entertaining, it connects us to others far away, it’s amazing. But like anything else, it’s imperfect. And now more than ever, there’s a greater risk of the internet being more toxic than it is healthy for us.
There are still many, many more of us who use the internet in positive, harmless, or productive ways. So, it all starts with each of us taking an action, however small, every time we’re online. You can help by sharing your tips or ideas on how to figure out what and who you can trust online.
Have an answer? Then tell us your story!
Be funny. Be dramatic. Be creative. Use live action, stop action, animation, original music or none. Whatever you do, be real.
And don’t stop there. You’ve got to let as many people as you can see your video and hear your message.
