The more you read your Twitter and Facebook feeds, the more you see a disturbing trend; namely people don't get the facts before they share something they have heard or read. The Borowitz Report has issued a small offering that sums up what is going on:
"Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen," he said.The New Yorker
Sure, this is satire. It would be extremely funny if it weren't so true.
To avoid becoming a fact-resistant human, take the time to look into something before you share it. Your friends and followers on social media will thank you for it.
