Hehehe... I dunno, I quite enjoy chuckling at a gullible person's expense. The sheer number of people who lazily click share on stuff that's shared with them without using google is staggering.

A really useful article Kevin, including the links. :D

There is another option not mentioned ....

That is to NOT participate in Facebook, not have a FB account and to not share anything, ever, from a third party source.

I really wish the so called "reputable" news sights went to the lengths that you're asking a casual reader to.

The simple solution: Use common sense and verify with Google.
