This scares me a lot too. Social media platforms make it so much easier to spread fake news. I've recently deleted my Facebook account because many use the platform to promote hate and conspiracy theories. I said goodbye to Twitter last year too.

I feel that people used to think more critically about the information presented to them. I worry that facts and evidence are no longer enough to guide people to the truth.
