• Take advantage of tools designed to help you identify fake news or fake sources such as FactCheck.org or Botometer.
  • Be aware that web sites, search engines, and social media are “personalizing” what you see based upon your search history and any information you’ve shared. Try to combat this personalization, which can limit the news you see, by deleting or disabling cookies or adjusting the preference settings on your social media accounts.
  • Take a tech break. Don’t rely on social media for all your news. Talk with others on campus, pick up a newspaper in Skillman or Kirby, or attend one of the many campus brown bags or lectures that deal with issues of the day.
