Letters on old wooden blocks (fact, fiction)

Do you believe everything you see online?

In today’s uncertain times, it is increasingly difficult to know what’s true. The growth of social media, smart devices and a multitude of online sources offer 24/7 connectivity and unprecedented access to a rapidly expanding sea of information. But with that access comes the threat of those who seek to deceive or trick consumers with misinformation.

There are plenty of sensationalized headlines, misleading stories and even complete falsehoods circulating on the Internet, making it hard for even the most discerning reader to sort fact from fiction. This free webinar will equip you with valuable tools and resources to help you stay safe online.

Join AAPR NH online on September 9 at 7 pm when we’ll share some tips and tools for determining what is real and what isn’t. Gather up the family, this is a valuable webinar for all ages. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to protect yourself and loves ones. Remember, all you need to participate is a computer with an internet connection and speakers or headphones.
