Not all you read on the internet is real. According to research, the internet contains a lot of useful material, but not all of it is reliable. For example, when this video of an orangutan washing its hands went viral. The majority of people assumed this was due to the coronavirus pandemic, which was also affecting animals, but in fact, this article was published a few months before the pandemic began. As a result, this is a perfect example of how not everyone on the internet is trustworthy. Before you use any information from any website on the internet, make sure you carefully hand wash each site, or in other words, double-check that the information is 100% accurate by doing more research on the subject. This can also be seen on a number of social media platforms. Another nice example is that many people think that “Team Snapchat” is the actual creator(s) of Snapchat posting about something, when in fact, it’s a bot posting all of the basic commands it was given. But the next time you’re on a website, make sure you do your homework before spreading a rumor.

I completely accept that many websites employ bots to manage their content and that many people believe one story over another. We must ensure that we are reading accurate and reliable facts rather than a speculation about something.

Is there a lot of reliable material on the internet?
