Fake or not fake. Do you see the difference? Take the test!

These days fake is a common word. Many people present alternative facts and want us to beleive in their truth. This is a very interesting test I noticed in the Washington Post. Read the article and do the test. I have. The research was done in England.

So amid this fakery and our obsession these days with “fake news,” just how good are we at separating fact from fiction when it comes to photos?

Not good at all, says Sophie J. Nightingale, who researches cognitive psychology at the University of Warwick in England.

However, a personal thought. If something is added on a picture, or removed, is very difficult to see and understand. The image of the person at the top of the article is easy. Don´t you agree?

Anyway, we need to be aware and look out for this.  By the way, I had 4. But it could easily have been zero.
