Uncertain & Overwhelmed? Find the truth with MasterStart.

In our world of rapidly advancing technology and social media, fake news, misinformation, hoaxes and conspiracy theories are in abundance - and spreading faster than ever.

While this has been an ongoing issue for several years, the COVID-19 pandemic has ignited growth in both the quantity of misinformation and conspiracy theories and the discussion around the issue.

Tomorrow is World Social Media Day – a time dedicated to recognising and celebrating the immense global impact of social media. Not only does it stand as a monument to human innovation and technological development, but it also offers us a beautiful opportunity to expand and deepen human connection. This is remarkable, and especially important right now, as millions of people find themselves separated from their loved ones and facing the difficulty and distress of isolation.

Social media is not without flaws, but it has gifted us with the ability to share our kindness, compassion, hope, and love like never before, and that should not be taken for granted.

We find ourselves in a world filled with fake news, misinformation, hoaxes, propaganda, and conspiracy theories, and it’s becoming harder and harder to spot the truth among the lies.
