Today, we all are consuming data and information on social media. Most of the times, we tend to believe that what we see on social media is correct. The advent of Over-The-Top Applications like WhatsApp have further made the dissemination of information as easy as the click of a button. Unfortunately, a large chunk of the information that is posted on social media is invariably either not accurate or is false.
