The FaceBucket Challenge
If you accept The FaceBucket Challenge, you must:
A) Promise that from now on, you will not share any alleged
facts on social media without first reading the Wikipedia entry likely
to contain confirmation of of the alleged fact;
B) Share a video of yourself putting a bucket over your head.
The FaceBucket challenge is intended to spread awareness about media
literacy, especially social media’s potential for spreading misleading
As participants in social media, we have a responsibility to the
others in our networks to not disseminate an inaccurate portrayal of the
world we live in. This is especially true when it comes to political
or ‘loaded’ topics where widespread misinformation can lead to
negative consequences for large numbers of people.
Also, it’s kind of funny.
