    Facebook users suffer from lack of critical thought

    New information platforms takes place as news websites around the world try new ways to engage in social media. Now, despite the positive side of such tools being made available, people without any actual information or argument are able to write articles and make use of other's lack of intelligence - and the platforms brand recognition as being trustworthy - to spread the word.

    In Brazil, such behaviour is spreading at alarming rates and websites such as the Guardian and CNN have been victims of that, with multiple anonymous reporters utilising their channels to imply things such as slavery promotion by the Brazilian government, through the creation of a health cooperation program with cuban doctors.

    The hope is that one day more people will have access to education so that they can not only read the articles and share, but also evaluate their compatibility with reality.
