We always read that fines are slapped on those who create fake information through social media. Despite this, we would still see many fake information going viral.
I would like to suggest that the authorities also fine those who are found forwarding the fake information as well.
The authorities need to be more aggressive in combatting the spread of fake news especially those who forward without checking the facts. I believe we will see less fake information being forwarded if people are fined for spreading misinformation.
