It is not really surprising any more that many people take the Internet for granted. Â It has over the past 20 years completely taken over many aspects of our lives and now it just feels like it has always just been there. Â The amount of information out there is simply staggering. Â Kids today have no idea what it used to entail to look up information. Â Using Encyclopedias, going to the library. Â It is a foreign concept that looking up and/or finding information on any topic was work. Â But now it is right there, at all times, at your ready.
So, why is that these days, people seem reluctant to use the information. Â To search and verify before reposting a story or meme? Â The information… the facts.. are there. Â Easily available. Â So why can’t people be bothered? Â Â The information is right there.. for free! Â Think before you spread rumors or take a stance against something that is not real.
So what about you? Â Do you double check information before you repost the latest meme or story?
