By now you've heard of fake news. Companies like Facebook are rolling out new features to help you identify it and report it. But now there are fake videos.
But 2 Wants to Know doesn't want you to get fooled! So here are some tips on how to spot a fake video found on The Verge.
- Google the topic. One search will show you whether it's been talked about - or if there are other sources. If you can't find it anywhere else, it's probably fake.
- Get up close and personal. Look at the video closely for inconsistencies, like shadows or reflections. Scambusters.org says, beware of video with poor lighting or blurry images.
- And look at proportions. If one object is a lot bigger than others, it might be fake.
