於社交網絡收到名人死亡新聞時應如何反應 101

感謝那些把這消息發給我的朋友們。假若這消息是真的話,猜我的確會跟著崩潰下來!可幸,我收到第一篇發過來的短消息後,我花了 60秒 去證實這消息(幸好)是假的。請也容許我在這裡舉辦一個簡短的 “於社交網絡收到名人死亡新聞時應如何反應 101′ 課程。從今以後,當你於任何社交網絡閱讀到任何有關某名人逝世的消息,請先看一看公佈此消息的網站域名(domain name)。如果域名由一堆無意思的英文字組成,或是來自美國或英國等大國以外的陌生域名,譬如中東、西班牙、波蘭(這些國家有非常像真的假新聞網站)等,這已足以證明該新聞有可能是假的。為了進一步證實,在你於你最喜愛的社交網絡上發報此消息前,請花約 30秒於 Google 搜尋一下 “ [名人姓名] 死亡新聞”。請謹記,若此消息已傳到你耳中,那就必定已傳到 CNN,BBC 等頂級新聞台(你斷不會妄想自己比 ABC News 更消息靈通吧!)。如果此新聞屬實,這些新聞網站的報道一定被置於 Google 搜索結果的頂部。最後,請了解維基比我們想像的更高效率。任何於維基擁有條目的人士一旦逝世,該條目幾乎會被即時更新。假設本人陳早怡於維基擁有條目,當我逝世的消息被官方證實後的半個小時內,你會於條目內的頂部看到 “陳早怡(1976-2014年)。所以,當你下次於社交網絡發放任何新聞消息前,不妨先花一分鐘做一做上述的步驟,讓自己能成為一個消息可靠的知情人士,並協助阻止這些黑心炒作者試圖傳播的黑心騙局!

Thanks to those who think this news would matter to me, and indeed it would, if only it is true. Meanwhile, pls allow MissJoey to give a short lesson on ‘What to do with Social Media Death News 101’. Next time, if you receive news about certain celebrity dying, look at the domain name of the website where this news is published. If it looks skeptical, for example, a bunch of letters that bear no significant meanings or unfamiliar domain names from countries outside USA, UK, such as the Middle East, Spain, Poland, etc., it already posts a chance that the news is just a hoax. Next, before you get all shocked and have the news posted on your favourite social network platforms, spend 30 secs on Google and do a search for “[celebrity name] death news”. If the news has already got to you, it would have already got to CNN, BBC and other top news stations. The news would definitely come up at the top position in the search results. Finally, Wiki is more updated than you can imagine. In any case of a person with a wiki entry has died, the entry is updated almost immediately, eg. you would see ‘MissJoey Chan (1976-2014)’ within an hour my death news is certified near the top of my wiki page, if only I had one. So if you want to make yourself a person of higher credibility of the news you spread, spend less than a minute in total to do the above and to help stop what these hoax creators are trying to spread.
