The Internet is a valuable resource to many people around the world. There are tons of information out there for everyone. However, not all information may be accurate or correct. It can be frustrating or time consuming to figure out credible sites and resources. And busy moms do not need to waste time in trying to figure out that.
So, how do you know what information to believe out there?
Here are some guidelines to help you figure if the website is credible or not.
1. The organization of that source is well known. For example, the American Cancer Society or the Red Cross. Then the source is reliable.
2. An author is listed on the website. You can easily check his or her credentials. People tend to believe articles written that have the author's name listed.
3. Many news channels found on television have websites. Use what is most common in your area first. If you are interested in reading other perspectives, and you are not familiar with those media sources, always find at least three sources from the same area to compare and contrast.
Don't be afraid to come up with your own guidelines as you find out if these are credible sources.
