As a journalist, I have learnt to check and cross-check references and information to ensure that what I write is accurate. Unfortunately, in this day and age, truths and lies have often become intertwined.
When I started reading Brian Solis’ article, I knew something was up and that he was trying to teach us a lesson. And it is a major one.
“Sometimes in real-time, we need to take a moment to make sure that what we see is right…right now. Verify. Fact check. Take a breath before reacting. At the same time, we need to take a moment to made sure what we also do is right…in real-time. As I’ve always said, with social media comes great responsibility. But what doesn’t change, even in the face of technology, is ethics. You are what you Tweet…even if you fake it.”
In his article, he talks about a service that allows you to create fake celebrity accounts. Do you agree with such a practice?
