Don't Believe Everything You Read on the Internet

“Don’t believe everything you read on the internet,” is the modern-day, “Don’t take candy from strangers.” Everybody knows it and everybody tries to abide by the rule, at least I have. But, everybody has given in to the temptation at some point. I’ve been inebriated by influencers, fooled by fake news, and swindled by bogus product reviews.

 But I like to think the trial and error has helped me hone my BS detector. And the better I’ve got at not believing everything I read on the internet, the more I’ve realized the strategies are the same as knowing which strangers it’s safe to accept candy from.
