Information is knowing facts about events that have arisen through transmission and communication between people. Everyone has their own point of view. Due to social media everyone can read, share and retain their view. We live in a world of communication, sending and receiving messages, collecting and distributing information. Communication can also be used to mislead by sharing (partly) incorrect information. Due to the rise of fake news you can't see the difference between real and fake anymore.
