The internet contains a wealth of information. But how do you know which sources you can and cannot trust? Mediawijs produced this poster with the 10 questions you should ask yourself to check is messages are real or fake.

Fake and misleading information isn’t new, it has been around since ancient times. Even traditional media sometimes share fake news from other sources too. But since the rise of digital and social media these messages spread faster and longer. And anyone can produce and publish any kind of information. How do you then recognise fawlty or misleading news?
