Despite efforts to stop the spread of fake news, the increasing popularity of social media makes it easy to amplify hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation.
Getting photos and mixing it with a few believable details and a lot of false information has become so simple that the act itself no longer takes imagination.
If these falsehoods reach beyond the highest vestige of the society, you can just imagine how easy it is to just throw shade at a normal person.

"I just want to clean my name .... Someone using my old picture and they put some caption (sic) na hind ku naman ginawa," the woman said in a message to Kami.com.ph.
