Is everything on the internet true?

Should you believe everything?

Based on what we learn at school about Violent crime.Session 2 expains it all. Do you believe everything you find on the Tv,google,Laptop or even a phone. In my opinion I dont. If you think about it they dont dig deep enough for information.

Do you believe everything you see on the news?

In my opinion I dont. If you wanna know why, read on. I dont believe everything i see on the news. Why? I think this because there seems to be something to freak out about all the time! But if you think about it, could we live without drama? Infact we would go insane without it! They squeeze the most horrible news in. Like murder! Do you feel incaged when you hear about this? I would especially if it was around my area.

Would you want them to dig deeper?

Yes! I would love if they digged deeper because then we would know the facts properly instead of parts of it squashed in to make it sound intresting. If they included this, People would like to read the news more. Then they would know what they are reading is true. That would involve 'telling the truth' 'researching more' 'Make it intresting but make it true'

Here are the link/links that i used for my post

This heped me use my imagination. It made me skeptical and wonder is it really true? It really helped me be open mided on what i wrote and how i thought it out. jolly_duck

    I agree, I don't believe everything that the news says because sometimes they make it sound more serious than it really is, and there is news everyday about the same things and how can there always be a new thing to talk about?
    I also agree with you when you said that they need to dig deeper because sometimes they don't give us enough information and we want to find more when they say about something, but they do still need to make it true.
    Thanks Jolly_Duck

    I don't think everything on the internet is true because if you go on to wikipedia people can change it so they will add things which are not true so don't always believe wikipedia. Double check on a different website if you don't think it is true.

    No , not everything on the internet is true for example ( this is not a real story by the way just an example ) : a girl was murderd on 21st street . but when someone types it up on a page or a newspaper they tend to over exaggerate and that simple yet extremely true story will become something like : girl was murderd on 21st street when parents let her go out on her own he was shot in the head and stabbed multiple times . This is not true because nobody knows any other information yet ! a lot of people get there hopes up when a lie like that comes up when it is not true and their hopes will come crashing down when they find out that , that is a lie

    There are a big range of websites on the internet or apps that give different news, sometimes when people post things it’s not true they just want attention and they want everyone to make a comment or share it to people. Don’t believe everything that’s off the internet because most of it is FAKE.

    The internet has a wide range of websites that inform us of different news, not all of it is true as the data the news collects is not collected by a reliable source there for it could lead to exaggerations and even lies. As the news focussed more on black men in London people over Britain normally do not get the whole entire picture. In conclusion because of the way the data is collected for news most internet sites are not a reliable source.

    I agree jolly duck, loads of news sites do lie allot. I think that lying or over exaggerating on the internet is absurd because thousands of people rely on important information like cooking recipes ! One tiny little lie about the recipe and a whole dinner could be ruined. This is the type of stuff you shouldn't count on.

    I believe everything I see on the news to an extent but sometimes things just don’t add up. It is usually because newspapers haven’t always got the full story or they just include things that the readers would find interesting and in doing this newspaper companies make lots of money and not everyone is fully informed on the full story

    I think that people shouldn't believe everything you see on the news as police data state different fact compared to the news. It is a true fact that the police data would be more accurate to the facts stated in the news as the police would be at the crime scene and find evidence using well-developed technological equipment.

    I agree, that the news which is shown on TV may not be completely true. Different channels highlight the headlines correctly but add some fake information or statistics to attract the viewers and show that the case is very serious. For example if there had been a bank robbery where £1,000 had been stolen the media would show as double the money had been robbed. So you have to be skeptical about what you see on the news as people may have different opinions and can add a lie in to extend the story.

    If the internet was always right, then more people would have internet access because it is always correct and important to read. Furthermore, less people will read newspapers, because articles on the internet would be up to date meaning newspapers would not be sold as often. As well as this, electronic devices, such as phones and androids, will be purchased much more, as it is beneficial to know local news. The internet, which would be more trustworthy, would be better than newspapers because newspapers can have one copy a day, whereas the internet have millions of websites. Moreover, websites can tell you about news in other countries, for example, America.

    Believing everything is untruthful on the internet is an extreme viewpoint. The internet has an immense amount of information and it's important to be sceptical and make sure we question what we find. However it's also a great way to research and find information.

    Do you have any examples of how the internet has helped you find out more about a BNC issue or a topic you're covering in school?

    What I really like about the internet is that I can find lots of information quickly and I can interact with others on it, like I am doing now. I am surrounded by so many people that have the same opinions as me and agree with me on most major debates (for instance I only know one person who I talk to often that is pro-Brexit), this is bad because I rarely have someone who challenges my ideas and makes me actually justify myself. The beauty of the internet is that I have the ability to talk to and interact with and read newspaper articles from all political viewpoints and walks of life because millions upon millions of people have access to the internet and so the ability to put ideas out onto it.. However the very thing that I love most about the internet is the very thing that is the reason that it is so unreliable: that anyone can put something on it. Let me explain...

    When I say anyone can put information out on the internet I mean anyone that has access to the internet, which is A LOT ( about '4.1 billion',
    hostingfacts.com reports). The thing is anyone can put information out their and, although most people have the right intentions, many don't and abuse the internet by putting fake news out their or by other means like using the black market. If someone wanted to, they could easily put out fake, or bias information or information that is just no showing the whole picture, for their own gain or just 'for a laugh'.

    However, it isn't just purposely false information, some information is out of date and also some information is written by people who are mistaken or don't know exactly what they are talking about. Information can stay up on the internet for a VERY long time, it doesn't have a time that it is deleted. I could write something today on here like how Usain Bolt is the fastest man to have run the 100m yet in 5,10, 20 years time that could likely be incorrect.

    Another blessing yet curse of the internet is that things are really quick and very easy to share. It's very easy for fake news and incorrect information to spread far and wide in a short period of time. You could see an amazing fact and thinking it was seemingly so amazing that you feel the need to share or retweet it without really wondering if it was true or not. Then the people you send it to share it and those share it until suddenly hundreds, thousands or even millions of people are being told something that simply is not true.

    So how can we avoid being mislead online, how can we avoid incorrect facts and help with stopping them from spreading?
    1. take your information from reliable sources.
    It is always good to take your information from reliable, trusted sources. It is not a good idea to take your information from websites that aren't official and if possible, it is a good idea to avoid websites that can be edited by anyone, like wikipedia
    2.Cross-check
    I personally like using wikipedia, especially when there is a lack of other resources to use but something I will always try and do, even if I'm pretty sure the facts are correct is cross-check (check from multiple websites). This is because if I check from multiple sources I can hopefully cancel out any false information by making sure the websites agree with each other and don't have any information that seemingly contradicts each other.
    3.Think before you share.
    By thinking before we post, or retweet, or share or include in a piece of our writing we are hopefully stopping ourselves from giving someone else incorrect information. It is really important that we aren't part of the problem so thinking and checking before we post ensures that someone else isn't being fooled or mislead by wrong information.
    4. Use your common sense.
    I think sometimes I have the tendency to automatically believe everything I see online as I often see a fact and don't doubt how legitimate it is. It's important to always be asking yourself if what you are reading seems reasonable, accurate or likely or if it is just too good to believe. Use your gut instinct because normally, though admittedly not always, if you gut it telling you that something is a load of baloney, it probably is.

    So in conclusion, the internet truly is an amazing place to research and get information from but it is always important to be careful with where you get your information from and what you believe. Just make sure you: are sceptical, cross-check, think before you share and use you common sense and hopefully you will not be deceived. I would be interested to know how you think you should avoid false information online and the problems with the internet, but also why you like it too.

    I think whatever you read I feel you must apply some level of skepticism regardless of whatever credible news source you are reading. Every article you will read is written by a person so its possible a person may not be 100% objective and inject their own bias slant on a certain issue. Even if they present a data source which is true but it could have been cherry picked from many other surveys/sources that would possibly contradict the argument.

    A piece of data could have been specifically chosen to support or downplay an issue and make the point seem stronger. The persuasive, exaggerated language can also be used to subtly convince you of their headlines. Just like the fact that the statistics are different between the Office for National Statistics and the police for measuring violent crime. And, a news report could choose one data set over the other to support their article rather than use both.

    If it is a very important issue that you need to fully understand it does require a lot of reading and comparing many different news source/article in order to seek out as many actual facts from both side of an argument. Going through all the different news media you find they differ a lot just on one issue based on the headlines alone. FullFact.org is a good site to go to.

    Take Brexit for example most people will say ‘I believe this and that’ to state a point but usually it’s peoples opinions and are very rarely based on actual facts. The media can be bias over any issue, or they may support a political party and no doubt it will affect what they choose to report or not to report.

    Gaining information and opinions from one source or sites that have similar viewpoints to yours causes an ‘echo chambers’ effect where people reaffirm what you say. Hence why we have bizzare people believing in a flat earth! And there’s even a convention for that!

    Yes, I do - many, in fact. Along with my opinions, I also try my best to include facts; that is why I research as much as I can before I write a post. However, I can recall some websites (It's sad I don't recall the NAMES though) where I have been sceptical about. Am I right to be?
    To be perfectly honest, I used much, much more of the internet and Google when I first came to BNC, and I think that the information and articles there are all very well - as long as they're real, that is. I'm just wondering though, why would people want to lie on the internet and on news articles? It's not like on YouTube, you get more views for clickbait, so what is it?

    ABSOLUTELY NOT. It is estimated that over half of everything posted on the internet for research purposes is false information. I have a big example of this.

    Now, before I state this example, I just would like to say that you may largely disagree with this, however, I guarantee you it is absolutely true and that I am not insane.

    This example is that global warming is largely caused by humans. I have found this all over the internet despite the fact it is not true. Here is why.

    Many scientists in the 20th Century have proposed the theory that the increase in climate over the past eighty years or so was due to the increase in greenhouse gas production. HOWEVER, this theory has only been proven in the sense that we contribute only the slightest amount to our warming climate and that our planet does it largely on its own. But the politicians seem to disagree.

    Al Gore, the vice president of Bill Clinton, came upon this, and decided to use it to his advantage. He raved about how our carbon emissions were increasing our climate and how we should take action to stop it. He did this so he could convince the public to listen to him, and propose the solution of raising people's heating bills, just so he could make more money. He even stated in his emails that he was lying! Talk about fake news.

    What is more, is that this is embedded into the school curriculum. Now, people are believing false information more than ever, and it is coming from the internet.

    What also comes from the internet is facts. There has been no ozone deprivation, no critical loss of ice on the ice caps, and certainly no artifically-caused climate change.

    And people think people saying that the moon was made of cheese was bad.

    i am definitely sure that not everything on the internet because there are a lot of hackers on the whole entire internet and they can control anything that you do on the internet and they can take you , YES YOU as a target on internet and they might not stop until they either : find out where you live , find out your or your parents credit card number , steal all your money on your device or threaten you online/in the internet .
    for example,
    we probably all seen those pop up advertisements that come out of nowhere , some of those were designed by hackers so that if you press on that half price car pop up add you might install a malware that would not be affected by the anti-malware system .

    No, I don't believe everything I see on the news owing to the fact that, it is estimated that over half of everything posted on the internet for research purposes is false information. Also, I would want it to be a trustworthy news company, like The BBC or The Guardian, because they are very well known and they have lots of processes in place to check their information. Furthermore, The New York Times said, "It’s True: False News Spreads Faster and Wider. And Humans Are to Blame." People are the culprits, according to a new study examining the flow of stories on Twitter. And the people, the study’s authors also say, prefer false news. As a result, false news travels faster, farther and deeper through the social network than true news. Research project finds humans, not robots, are primarily responsible for spread of misleading information. “We found that falsehood diffuses significantly farther, faster, deeper, and more broadly than the truth, in all categories of information, and in many cases by an order of magnitude,” says Sinan Aral, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management and co-author of a new paper detailing the findings. So, I don't believe all news because so many studies have happened to show how much there is; however, I do believe things like Brexit because The BBC discuss it continuously and we voted on it so we made our mark on it.

    Yes, I would like to dig deeper because if something on the news bothers us or doesn't sound right, we should be skeptical about it. We should find different information on the topic and either back it up or disagree with the news.

    Explain your reason in a fuller form. For example...It wasn't always true but now especially because they right things that sound believable all for the money for themselves.
