How Well Can You Spot Fake News?
Factitious is a game that checks how well you can distinguish reliable news and fake news stories. I scored 100%. I don't know if that's because I'm careful with sources, or because I'd already seen all the stories in the game. True, I was burned a few times when I started blogging and quickly learned to check sources, or sit on something if it didn't pass the "smell test." That said, this game concentrates on news stories, and does not dwell on politics or opinion pieces.
