In response to ongoing problems in social media regarding intentional spreading of misinformation, rumors, and absurd conspiracy theories, I created this poster in order to inspire more critical engagement with mass communication.
Using the metaphor of a maze included in multiple speech bubbles, I hope to communicate the challenges of simply accepting information that is being circulated. Viewers/readers need to be critical and to check facts and sources in this era of intentional misdirection by message makers. Now more than ever, facts matter.
