In the age of digital, smartphones are becoming an unavoidable thing. A survey says that 40-50% of the smartphone users spend time in social media. As the roots of social media are growing stronger, publishers prefer to feed their news in social media platforms. At the same time, these technological advancements could be used to spread false and antisocial news.
