Summary "Before you share information, can you separate fact from fiction? Bias Is All Around You: A Handbook for Inspecting Social Media & News Stories is designed to help you authenticate any form of information for possible bias before you use it and/or share it in your network. "A life worth living is a life well led", as the famous saying goes. We need to take the lead, because inspecting information properly for mental health is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Why? We are inundated with a barrage of seemingly unending and conflicting information from seven primary sources of all potential bias. If you cannot properly assess information bias? It could: 1. Lead you to follow a false cause. 2.Leave you feeling foolish. 3.Tarnish your credibility. 4. Attract the wrong people. 5. Create undue stress. 6. Compromise your values. 7. Harm your mental health. These undesirable outcomes need not occur! For it's time to read between the lines and assess bias now! Together, we can chart a new discourse, one that uses information wisely, with prudence, and goodwill. Join researcher and author Erik Bean as he discusses a rigorous yet introspective journey to snuff out bias, to understand algorithms that affect Internet and social media information, and provide you simple assessment tools that allow you to be more confident if you use the information and share it. Foreword written by Tim Vos, PhD, director, School of Journalism, Michigan State University."
