In class earlier this week, we listened to a recording and did an activity on whether the news we see everyday on social media is real or fake. After going to a birthday party on Saturday, I was reminded of this audio since one of my friends got a birthday present for my other friend. However, the present looked very expensive but was actually a knock off brand that you could get for less than $10 even thought it was worth around $30. Instead of telling her the truth, she told my friend that it was the real thing, making it look like she put in a lot of effort for the present. This made me realize that even though it may be fake news, it still can make someone happy and that for some cases, it’s actually better off to tell fake news rather than the truth.
