Fake News + Clickbait

Fake News + Clickbait

Teach your kids (and yourself) how to spot fake news and avoid clickbait. Beware of unusual/shortened URLs (copy and paste to Unshorten.It!). Look for all caps and bad grammar. Check a site’s “About Us” section. Fact check on Snopes or Google. Avoid enticing photos! Do an image search on Google to see if a picture is for real. Kids want to be informed and get most of their news online. It’s our job to guide them rightly. Visit www.commonsensemedia.org for a list of best news sources for kids.
