Rana Ayyub or Shefali Vaidya, nobody is safe from fake screenshots:


Free online tools available on the internet have given users the power to morph social media posts as well. And in the hands of propagandists, these fake posts and ‘screenshots’ have become yet another powerful way to spread venom and gain political advantage.

Of course, a random user abusing someone would rarely go viral. But these fake screenshots are attributed to famous individuals, and the public laps it up.

Websites like prankmenot.com and breakyourownnews.com just ask the user to insert details, image and time of the post, and a fake screenshot is created.

Given that the Indian social media audience largely lacks awareness about misinformation, ‘prank’ posts are now being taken seriously, deepening the divide on social media.

More serious is that in the hurry to first publish the news many media sites are not properly investigating the issue and many a times end up using fake images leading to fake news.
