Amid UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2023, the #ShareResponsibly digital campaign intends to raise awareness on the importance of critical thinking practices before sharing content on social media.
In today's digital age, misinformation, conspiracy theories, false rumors, sensationalized news, and unverified data flood our social media feeds, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.
“In this deluge of information, we need more reference points and more rational thinking. And that is why media and information literacy is such a key skill for the education of 21st-century citizens."remarks Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO Director-General.
This #ShareResponsibly social impact campaign, brings to light the pervasive kinds of misinformation social media users often fall victims to. Every day, our online experience is inundated with a wide array of content—ranging from sensationalized news, clickbaity videos, and false rumors to wild conspiracy theories, misleading product/service promotions, purported expert advices, and unverified data. If not critically examined, our engagement with and sharing of these contents can inadvertently contribute to the rapid spread of misinformation.
By replicating various forms of this content with compelling, attention-grabbing copies and a straightforward Call To Action, this campaign adjusts the existing social media interface,to highlight the correct order of digital interaction protocol: “Pause-Think-Verify-Like-Comment-Share.” By advocating for critical thinking and responsible sharing, it educates and empowers individuals to recognize and halt the spread of false news, misinformation, rumors, and unverified claims.
This social impact campaign emphasizes the pivotal role each individual plays in curbing the spread of misinformation online, and implores each and everyone to pause & practice critical thinking & fact vertification before hitting the ‘Share’ button. Our collective responsibility is pivotal in combatting the spread of misinformation online, contributing to a more reliable and trustworthy online community for all.
Think Critically. #ShareResponsibly.
