Stopping gossip and fake news

match-549105_960_720

Nothing spreads faster than gossip and fake news, but we can slow them down. Be the one to quit spreading the words and the sentiment. Seek understanding before judging, criticising and condemning. Before sharing, verify: if it’s false, don’t share it; if it cannot be verified, don’t share it. If it’s true, it’s not gossip.
