TEDx: Scepticism in an ultra-connected age

Speaking at TEDx Square Mile in November was a wonderful experience and lots of fun. I spoke about the perils of social media in terms of the quality and accuracy of the information spread on its platforms. 

I was surprised after the talk how many people approached me, expressing frustration at the amount of false information they come across on a regular basis. I'm glad I'm not alone in feeling like this! Perhaps, this collective desire for accuracy and truth will lead, somehow, to a reduction of fabricated information being shared online.

Have you found any examples lately of gross misinformation being spread on Facebook or Twitter? Email or Tweet me examples!
