GIZMODO did a great job of reminding us why we should be vigilant when reposting images through social media. Photography is a great storytelling medium, but it’s important to remember that it can also be misleading. GIZMODO demonstrated this with an article showing 10 viral photos that weren’t what they appeared to be. The article incorporates both real and fake images to demonstrate the differences in the images, and to highlight the truth. There’s also text that gives greater details about the images and events in question.
