Unsocial media

“Police See Social Media Fuel Crime,” The Wall Street Journal, November 25, 2017 A3.  Immediate access to information “played a major role in escalating disputes….”

One assumes that this is true whether the information spread on social media is or isn’t true.  Is a lie halfway around the world before the truth gets its shoes on?

What are the social implications of so much (unfiltered and unverified) information being made available to so many so fast?  Who has a duty to verify or filter it?  How do you control this within the confines of your business?  Do you have a duty to?  Is the control only common sense?
