Relying only on social media news has caused major issues for many young people who have difficulty determining the credibility of news sources. A recent study by Stanford University of nearly 8,000 students (from grammar school through college) tested their ability to tell news from ads and to discern websites from hate groups and mainstream professional organizations.
