Facebook is clamping down on ‘fake news’ posts following an influx of disinformation on its feed.
In fact, the social media giant announced it would join a coalition made up of over 20 news organisations, including Twitter, in an effort to reduce false ‘live feeds’, and conspiracy theories peddled as fact.
But it isn’t just fake news that proliferate the social media website – fake accounts are also in abundance, which is why it is vital to keep the information you share to a minimum.
Specifically refrain from sharing the following:

It's probably best not to showcase the exact details of the documents relating to each of these things, however. They're easily replicated and identity fraud is rife.
