News from Social Media: Fact or Fiction?
by Julie Hoff

You’ve probably heard people say “you shouldn’t get your news from social media,” but the truth is... I do. And I am ok with it…and all the other online news sources, too.

Yes, it’s important to call out or disregard the “fake news” or the “non-news news,” but at the end of the day, I get a lot of good news, hard news, and inspirational news from Facebook and other social media platforms.
