    When I browse my timeline, I often find people sharing health and fitness related stories that I know are obviously false. But I don’t always catch a fake story before I share it with my followers! What’s the best technique you use to figure out fake news?

    I run it by snopes.com, factcheck.org, hoax-slayer.com, whoishostingthis.com, or other hoax checking sites, snopes being the most popular. I wish more people would do this instead of just hitting the share button, although I must admit, I’ve shared a few, myself before checking them out.

    Most links have a display url, you can Google that url before sharing.

    And it’s not just health and fitness. I usually say that I saw it on Facebook so I know it’s not true. lol
