There is no doubt that we have entered a new age of bewilderment in which it is harder than ever before to decide where the truth lies.

Before the explosion of social media, the world seemed an altogether simpler place, with information reaching us via a relatively small number of seemingly trustworthy sources.

The rise of social media has generated a cacophony of contradictory information, mixed in with fake news on an industrial scale.

Despite this, many people actually consider social media to be more credible and honest than mainstream media.

The social media revolution has also moved many personal relationships online.

Just like we used to get our favorite news from a few known sources, we also used to turn to a few friends to ask for advice about difficult decisions.
