Let’s Analyze

The news that Metro Manila was placed under MECQ sells like
hotcake. It was the talk of the town. However, there so many fake news
being spread by some individuals who just want to make themselves and
their ideas known in social media. The people were confused which news
should they believe in. Information dissemination is needed but fake ones
should be discouraged.

When you spread fake news, do you use the function of communication
that information should be disseminated? Why? Why not? Is it right to share fake
news on Facebook?
