- Social networking media include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc. In fact, everyone has a social account. While we can find any news there, they can be misleading given the lack of regulations on the shared content.
- Online forums such as Quora, Reddit, are online websites where the community can comment on, text, or discuss a particular topic. Forums allow us to share knowledge with others who have similar interests. That is why it is considered the best platform for seeking support and help.
