When you’re on the internet, you’re usually in control of everything you’re looking at.
And in the case of Facebook, you have full control over what you see and who you’re interacting with.
You don’t have to worry about the people or the content you’re posting being viewed by someone else.
In fact, the Facebook “safety net” is more like a virtual lock on the entire internet than a traditional firewall.
You can’t just look at your feed and not know what you’re seeing.
And yet, Facebook has come under fire for not providing a way for users to see what’s going on with the content they post.
That’s because when Facebook has the content on its platform available to the public, the company doesn’t have the ability to determine if the content is authentic or not.
That means you can’t tell if your friends or family have been tricked into viewing fake news.
What you can do, however, is check your feed to see if any posts or posts in the same niche have been altered or manipulated.
That way, you can be sure that the content isn’t a total fake.
So let’s explore how to check if a post or post in your feed is a total hoax.
To do this, open the Facebook app on your phone, then scroll to the bottom of your feed.
Under the “My News Feed” section, click the “Edit” button at the top of the page.
If you see a post with a red X next to it, you’ve been hacked.
If not, you may have been.
