There are also many “fake news” websites that compete for attention with sensational headlines and ridiculous storylines that tend to get shared more often due to the lack of readers fact checking or reading more than the headline.

So people should be more aware of this issue and start getting educated about it to protect themselves and their privacy and their rights.
