This section has been developed to help generate discussions about the trustworthiness of content and contact online; developing critical thinking skills and exploring indicators for trust to consider if what we see and who we communicate with online is trustworthy.
Whilst online we can encounter a vast amount of information, photos, videos and messages from others. However, deciphering what we can trust and recognising content which has been edited or contact which isn’t trustworthy can be challenging. When engaging with others online and the content they have shared it is important to consider who they are, what their motives might be and if any key indicators of trust are missing.
Misleading or edited content can be easily shared online both intentionally and unintentionally. However, the impact it can have on the person engaging with it is important as it could lead them to feel worried, upset, confused or develop a false perception of trust.
