All of you must have surely come across this image circulating on Whatsapp after PM Modi’s 9 pm – 9 minute call to light up the nation as a symbol of solidarity and unity during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Sadly, it wasn’t true.
In case you didn’t get this, surely you would have been bombarded with how you need to quit WhatsApp groups right away.
But even this is not true (we don’t blame you for falling for this one as it even produces a news website link).
All of us have atleast once fallen for fake news or information, sent to us either through an innocent WhatsApp forward or on social media platforms. Especially during the coronavirus lockdown, such fake news can cause tons of confusion and have real life impact either personally or on businesses.
Renowned experts from this field will now be coming together in an interesting conversation on Getting Verified Information In Times Of Fake News to tell us how we can navigate our way through.
