As Human needs for more information exist, more sources are digested. Not all are good for the tummy. Negative news, false news, that targets the emotional appetites of people on the consumers of Social Media. As more and more babies grow up only to be reattached to another umbilical cord, the IoT. Actually 2.9 cords for every home.
Ipad, Laptops, Phones, Xbox Consoles, Voice Assistants like Alexa, Echo and Google home, watches, spectacles - (millennial version of Google Glass?), some of us have 10 devices per human.
Oops.. almost forgot the next frontier.. Appliances..
Add Washer/Dryer and Refrigerator to the list of devices. Toilets, Door and Garage Door Entry Systems, Automobiles, Children's Monitoring Devices, Thermostats, Televisions, Shoes, Wristbands, Wearables.. Plug into the Matrix much?
As we consume and curate more information online, who can you trust? Who won't post fake news?
