Today a politician noted that in the past we searched more in google.
Things like “crisis” when the crisis stroke, and so on, would be searched more in the past than today.
What if right now we focus more on the information we get through facebook thanks to our friend circle?
What if we consider that information true and instead of searching, documenting, get information, we leave at that?
Maybe the problem doesn’t revolve around searching, maybe it revolves around “trust” and the illusion of truth.
Facebook built the idea that we can trust our friends, their opinion, their view of the world.
Therefore when a friend shares something on facebook you expect him/her to have an informed position about the argument.
Not always the case, sadly.
Still, we continue to trust that piece of information without getting more info and all because we confuse friendship with source trust.
