There’s been a lot of controversy around fake news and its influence on public opinion. We asked the public for their thoughts on fake news.

Charlotte Ditshego, Daveyton: It’s not fair and it could affect a lot of people. Fake news might lead to people committing suicide because their reputation could be damaged.

Suzan Nkadimeng, Daveyton: Publishing fake news is not right and is unfair to a person. How would you feel if you saw false news about yourself?

Ruan Jansen van Vuren: Publishing fake news won’t be fair to the person as it forms a negative image. It can affect a person at school or work.
