Fake news can be false information, photos or videos purposefully created to confuse or misinform. It can also be genuine information that has been manipulated to deceive. It’s important that children learn how to distinguish between real news and fake news, so that they don’t inadvertently share something which isn’t true or believe something which could be misleading.
In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as embarrassment, negative influences on people’s behaviour and negative emotions.
