UN Secretary-General Guterres urges people to check facts and not spread fakes

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has called on people to check facts before sharing content on the Internet, thus preventing the spread of fakes.

“We all have a role to play in stopping the spread of harmful falsehoods and misinformation. Stop and check facts before sharing content online,” he wrote on microblogging Twitter.

He also added a number of questions to think about before sharing content online, namely “Who is the author of the content?”, “What is the source of the information?”, “Where did the information come from?”, “Why are you sharing it?” and “Where was it published?”.
