Fake news has become a prevalent issue in the United States of America. It’s also becoming more difficult each day to tell the fake news apart from the real news. That’s why B.S. Detector was created.
B.S. Detector is an extension you can add on to any browser that is designed to spot sources of:
- Fake news
- Extreme bias
- Conspiracy theory
- Rumor mill
- Junk science
- Hate group
Simply go to B.S. Detector’s website and download the extension to whichever internet browser you prefer. After that, B.S. Detector does the work for you.
If you go to a website like InfoWars, you should receive a message at the top that says, “WARNING: THIS MAY NOT BE A RELIABLE SOURCE (CONSPIRACY THEORY).”
As you’re scrolling through Twitter, you might see a warning message that warns you a source is actually clickbait.
Being able to detect fake news and anything biased is extremely important today, especially for millennials. Most millennials get their news from social media, but some sources on social media want to sway opinions.
In fact, B.S. Detector was created because Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg dismissed the idea of fake news being on Facebook. Since then, Zuckerberg has apologized and admitted that he was wrong to dismiss the idea.
If you’re the type of person who uses social media on your laptop every day, B.S. Detector is a great way to weed out the news you shouldn’t read.
B.S. Detector is completely free to use and does not slow down the speed of the internet.
So, if you’re tired of reading fake news or hearing about fake news, do something about it. B.S. Detector will help you learn which sites to trust, and which sites not to.
News gives you facts so you can shape an opinion. B.S. Detector helps you do this. What are you waiting for? Go download it.
