Do you believe everything you see online? AARP will hold a free 30-minute "Sorting Fact From Fiction Online" webinar at 7 p.m. Thursday, August 6.
In addition to a wealth of helpful information, there are plenty of sensationalized headlines, misleading stories and even complete falsehoods circulating on the internet, making it hard for even the most discerning reader to sort fact from fiction.
You can stay one step ahead of misinformation if you know the three most helpful questions to ask yourself while surfing the web. This free webinar will equip you with tools and resources like the AARP Fact Tracker, which has been designed to help you distinguish fact from fiction online.
Plus, you could discover:
- Ways to determine if the source you’re using is reputable
- How to report misleading information or scams
- Ideas for approaching friends or family who have shared inaccurate content
