Know Peace Online: Know Your Responsibility

Well-meaning people who pass along flawed information are prevalent online.

A recent Pew study found that almost 20 percent of Americans get their political news from social media. For those under 30, this number jumps to almost 50 percent. This same study showed that those who use social media as their news source tend to be less informed about current events than the general public.

Social media is a powerful tool. It’s up to us to use it responsibly.
