Here’s the truth: ‘fake news’ is not social media’s fault

But we are living in a post-truth society where it is extraordinarily difficult to correct falsehoods passed on so swiftly and indiscriminately through the net

Remember how mainstream media’s lies and distortions were going to be corrected by people using social media?

Now we have mainstream media trying to cope with fake news distributed through social media.

To add to the drama, we have fake claims by digital moguls that they can do something positive to stop the dissemination of fake news.

Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg, having initially denied that fake news was problematic, now wants us to believe that “we’ve been working on this problem for a long time.” Really? So it is a problem after all?

As for Google, its chiefs seem to think fake news will be strangled to death by removing advertising tools that enable sites to make money by spreading lies.

But the fake news phenomenon is not only driven by shysters seeking profit. Some of it is propagandistic (as was clear during the US presidential election) and some of it is simply mischievous.

Politicians have no right to complain. Down the years so many of them have played fast and loose with the truth. Their spin doctors turned lying into an art form.

This year’s elections on either side of the Atlantic confirmed that we may, sadly, be living in a post-truth society.

Americans have elected a lying president in Donald Trump. Britons have voted to leave the European Union in a campaign noted for abundant lies.

Mainstream media has been blindsided by the lying phenomenon. Cynics will surely say that its chiefs are upset by the rise of competing liars who appear to do the job so much better than them.

So be it. But let’s also consider how difficult it is nowadays for journalists who think they are being fair and balanced (not in a Fox News way) in their reporting.

Their impartiality tools just don’t work any longer. For example, during the Brexit debate, the views of the overwhelming majority of scientists were “balanced” in a BBC discussion by the opinion of a spokesman for a fringe body. There was no equivalence.

Barack Obama made a similar observation in a New Yorker interview in saying: “An explanation of climate change from a Nobel prize-winning physicist looks exactly the same on your Facebook page as the denial of climate change by somebody on the Koch brothers’ payroll.”

His complaint about is that, in the new media environment, “everything is true and nothing is true.” In fact, as the BBC instance shows, it happens across all media.

The real problem with new media is the speed with which falsehoods are spread and the difficulty of providing countervailing corrective information.

I have just faced the consequences of this phenomenon. Last week, the students’ union at City, University of London passed a stupid motion banning the Sun, Daily Mail and Daily Express from the campus.

None of the 500 or so students currently studying journalism at City voted for the motion. Indeed, only one of them appears to have attended the meeting (and voted against the ban).

Yet, on Facebook, a number of people – including current and former journalists – misread the stories about the vote and began to criticise City’s journalism students for doing something they had not done.

Despite my unequivocal statement about journalism students having had no responsibility for the motion, and similar forthright denials by my colleagues, the lie proved difficult to quash.

People picked up on the story days later and, unaware of the truth, repeated it. So denials had to be ceaselessly reiterated. A myth had been created and it wouldn’t surprise me if there are still people who believe it.

It’s not the fault of social media (you can’t blame the platform), but it is a consequence of it, because lies can be passed on so swiftly and indiscriminately.

And, of course, it is also about human fallibility. Lies that play to our prejudices are more easily believed and we pass them on thoughtlessly, exacerbating the problem.

Quoting Obama again, he said of new media: “The capacity to disseminate misinformation, wild conspiracy theories, to paint the opposition in wildly negative light without any rebuttal – that has accelerated in ways that much more sharply polarise the electorate and make it very difficult to have a common conversation.”

Yes, and here’s a further irony. There is a well-known adage that “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on.”

It is usually attributed to Winston Churchill. But the website Quote Investigator, which substitutes shoes for trousers incidentally, suggests it was coined many, many years before Churchill got to it.

So even a quote about how lies gain currency could be false. And we can’t blame social media for that, can we?


Online Shopping – The smarter shopping experience.

Online shopping has gained so much popularity among people today, that almost all the leading and small scale brands have started merchandising their products through online shopping. There are electronics, apparels, accessories, jewelry, stationary what not…every product has come to a “click away distance”. The best thing about online shopping is that you will only sit in your place and pay for it, the product gets delivered at your door step within the stipulated time frame. You can even send the product to someone abroad as well.

E-commerce has taken the online shopping experience to its next level by their widest range of savings offers and varieties of products. There is everything available online with a detailed explanation of the product which gives the customer the feel of virtual shopping.  The products range from clothing to android tablets and from an anti snoring device to the high efficient LED lights. All these are coming up from the branded seller and come with unmatched quality.

When you are unsure on what to give a loved one, just dive into the online shopping web pages and start exploring to come up with the best idea ever. This will give you chance to go through hundreds of products in each category and buy the best ones among them. This kind of shopping you won’t be able to do in virtual shopping because most of the people hesitate to ask the sales person to show more products after certain limit. This won’t happen in online shopping.

While you have plenty of products displayed to make a choice, you are given a choice to make payments as well.  You can buy using your debit card, credit card or use net banking where the amount is directly withdrawn from your bank account balance. This is done via a secured gateway to prevent the incorrect usage of the details you key in. The products bought via online shopping are safely delivered at your door step. There is another payment mode COD (Cash on delivery) where you can take the productFree Articles, check and pay for it only if you receive it in proper condition.

Can Grab or Uber monitor your driving pattern and use that as a reason to ban!

According to one driver in Singapore! they can. Below are the screenshots.

Average Hard Braking Events 4!

Average Sudden Acceleration Events 7!


How can GRAB provide such details on the way the driver drives! But cannot provide clear information on the driver’s earnings?




To all those drivers who are banned! from Uber or Grab in Singapore! Consider it a blessing.

If what I said is wrong! please let me know in the comments.

To answer a question like; “Where to go for a holiday” gets another question of “What do you want to do on your holiday”. The common answer from those traveling as a family is usually sightseeing and shopping. Husbands love to ‘sightsee’ and wives love to ‘shop’ as tourists.

Here I am going to share some popular destinations of the world where you can go and enjoy with your family and friends. As to what you can do in each and every destination is not possible in one post. So I have provided links for other sites which provide more information for tourists.

Bangkok: – Bangkok is the capital and the most beautiful city in Thailand.

Ho Chi Minh – Ho Chi Minh is the capital of Vietnam. A communist country where the government takes care of its citizens. Really ironic.

London: – London is a is the city of England, which is famous for its surroundings, for shopping and museums.

Singapore: – This is another Asian city which is famous for its tourism activities.

Kuala Lumpur: – Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia.

Difference between Canon DSLR 800d and 80d

In February, Canon announced the EOS Rebel T7i (800D) and EOS 77D, adding two new choices to the company’s already confusing lineup.  Canon has always kept the identification of its DSLR models simple. Not any more with the introduction of the 77D.

In this article we’ll break down what separates the T7i, 77D and the existing EOS 80D.

All models have a same sensor “24.2MP APS-C CMOS”.
Processor is better on the 800D (Digic 7) vs (Digic 6) on the 80D
ISO Range better on the 800D at 25600 vs the 80D at 12800
Shutter Speed better on the  80D at 1/8000
Viewfinder coverage is 100% on the 80D vs 95% on the 800D.

The video below may hopefully clear some part of the Canon naming process.

Advantages of a Chauffeur Driven Vehicle when traveling

Many people tend to avoid, or don’t think about hiring a chauffeur driven car,  because they think it is expensive and usually for VIPs, celebrities and high flyers. In the past this could be true, but with the introduction of ride  sharing apps like Uber/Lyft and Grab in Asia, it has opened the doors for normal cars to come in and cater to the budget traveler.

We all travel at some point in our daily lives, obviously some more than others.  When traveling abroad, whether this is the small businessman on his once a year holiday, or the businessman who is in a different city twice a week, the problems of traveling in unknown places are the same…they need to take a taxi. Now if they were to travel to a place where taxis do not frequent, their return trip might be a problem.

With a hired chauffeured service, the problem is removed. Immediately you have at your disposal a safe and experienced driver with an excellent knowledge of the local area. Arrive at the airport, be picked up by the chauffeur and he will whisk you on to our hotel, via an excellent local restaurant if that is what you wish.

The point being that you have at your service a local tour guide, who knows were your hotel is, knows the good restaurants and will be able to deliver you promptly to your business meeting when needed, or perhaps take you onwards to the best beach in the area, if you are on holiday.
