Have conspiracy theorist posts subsided on your facebook page?
They have on mine. I think part of the reason is before, people would post the stupid stuff and I, and others, would come back with proof that it was a hoax or a flat out lie. Then the fires would start.
However, I liked a page called “Checking With Snopes Before Forwarding Dumb Emails,” and they address all of the BS as it shows up on Snopes. I share their stuff, as well as my own findings on Snopes. Between us, on my page anyway, we’re taking the offensive. We’re discrediting the rumors before they ever even get posted by the conspiracy nuts.
If my friends see a post saying that there is a rumor going around that proving FEMA is building concentration camps, and here is the proof that this isn’t true, then someone posts a comment later going “OMG! FEMA is building concentration camps!” they look like a fool.
I also think the social message from everyone saying, basically, that “You’re stupid for even believing this” is finally getting through to them too. At least enough for them to shut up.
