Dans le monde d'aujourd'hui, on dépend tous sur les médias sociaux pour savoir ce qui se passe autour du monde, pour communiquer avec nos amis, famille etc… Cependant, les médias sociaux sont également très dangereux.. Par exemple, plusieurs personnes ont perdu leur vie à cause d'avoir utiliser Facebook tout en conduisant, ce qui peut causer un accident mortel. L'utilisation excessive du médias sociaux peut également mener à un enjeu à notre santé mentale. Cette génération ne peut pas vivre une journée sans aller sur les médias sociaux..

Il y a toujours eu plusieurs débats sur les drogues et leurs légalisations. Aujourd’hui, la marijuana devient un sujet de plus en plus rechercher par des experts et en discuter par le publique générale. Ils ont trouvé que la marijuana pourrait être une solution merveilleuse dans une variété de domaines. Depuis que le Premier Ministre du Canada, Justin Trudeau, a pris pouvoir il a effectué des promets que la marijuana sera complètement légaliser pour les bénéfices médicaux, sociaux et financiers.

Reply to: Fake news or not?
3 mois 5 jours ago

To begin with, your article is very well written and well structured.
However, there is very little information being provided on the article itself, which makes it hard for me to consider if the article is reliable or not. Although the National Post, may seem like a reliable source, the author is still unknown. Therefore, the article cannot be deemed as credible because there is no background information on the author, nor any information on his educational background. For future reference it would be best to find an article with a reliable author and provide a detailed description of the article.
Here is a credited source article that confirms your article: https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/24/politics/pope-fake-news-trump/index.html

To begin with, your article is very precise and well written. I enjoyed reading contemporary issues that revolve around us young adults and teenagers and it is important for the youth to understand the serious problems about fake news.
Moreover, I believe that the article may not be so reliable because the author of this article has little information about him. The was no background information that was provided for him, nor did you provide his educational degree's that the other has. In addition, the reason why I believe this article cannot be considered as reliable is because it is known that real celebrities and famous people don't personally write what they post on social media, they have someone write it for them, that's why Twitter or Facebook can't be considered a reliable source to be credited.
However, I liked the content you provided and I think it was really well presented! For future reference it would best to provide a detailed background check on the author in order to determine his credibility. Here is an article provided for you from Global News that very well confirms your information.

While reading your article it showed me another side of fake news which I did not look at before. An article that gives you a distinct perspective on fake news will be provided in a link below, it looks at how fake news is stimulated through social media. In fact, fake news on social media is more popular that the real news articles. The fact older people are more susceptible to believing fake news can be a bigger issue than we anticipate, most young people believe when older people tell us something. If the older person is telling a younger person something they read on fake news this can be a big issue. Also, I agree with you I do believe journalists are more inclined to tell popular stories rather than truthful ones. Media is about creating the most attention in society and things that catch our attention are not always beneficial for us to read. Also, to your point about democracy, media can be a strong tool used to make people elect someone to become president. In the United States Donald trump used this to his advantage he would make a controversial political statement everyone would talk about it and he would become more popular. One point you can add to your article to provide more insight in your topic is the study done on individuals about interpreting fake news. In your article it lists a study that was done to see the influence of fake news and who is more susceptible to fake news. All in all, I really enjoyed reading your article it was good learning new things, you just need to work on the tense of verbs and everything will be good. Well written summary which I found very interesting.

Fake news can be a very interesting topic as it affects everyone in society because anyone can be influenced by it. It is interesting that Ms. Berman wrote about the "war of the worlds" as this was one of the first experiences of fake news creating many to believe a false claim. Reading things like this can be beneficial to us all so we can understand what fake news is and what is real news. One thing your article may benefit from is to provide more details on the issues occurrent in your article. There were many big stories in the articles I did not find in your summary, like the interview of victims in the Connecticut elementary shooting. This aspect gives you a different point of view about fake news, as the articles are real, conspiracy theorists trying are to blame gun control and deem these situations fake. Another aspect of public influence and fake news is when countries use media outlets to broadcast fake news to sway public opinion, more will be summarized in the link provided below. Your point on having a credible author is very important as anyone can create a website and post anything they want. throughout reading your summary of fake news it was very enlightening and well written. There are small sentence structuring issues but overall it is written very well.

I like to see your opinion after reading my text. I did not talk about the benefits that exercises have on the kids' brain and I am really glad that you brought this idea. I think it would be nice to study this case and see if it exercise has a bigger influence on the kids. Thank you for reading my text and for making a comment! (Anne-Julie P)

Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I agree with you that I need to use more simple terms, but, for my defense, we have a biology class so terms like "eukaryotic" are already in our vocabulary. :-) ( It actually means with a "true" nucleus ) I also agree with the fact that I made a few mistakes, it is my biggest difficulty in the learning of English and I want to become better in the future.
