We all have our fan girl/boy moments when we see our favourite celebrities on TV or in person. Who doesn’t dream of meeting their favourite celebrities outside of a TV screen. However, we not only dream of meeting them but also like to keep ourselves up to date about the lives of our favourite stars. It also makes up for an interesting past time to learn about the latest gossip in the tinsel town. However, for some of us, celebrities are not just source of cheap thrill or entertainment. They are their idols, their inspiration and the reason that drives them to do something. With such honesty and passion towards a celebrity, it can be very disappointing to read false news or information that is not credible.
If you are looking for only genuine news for your favourite celebrities, no matter which part of the world they are from, use the following tips to ensure its credibility.
The authenticity of news depends on the source it is coming from. So if you only want to read the truth and not gossip, then you should go to credible sources for your information. Reputed news websites and portals are the first hand reporters of the news and always back the statements they make in their news pieces. Since a lot is in the line and they can be sued for false reporting, these websites usually take extra care to gather and provide the information.
You can also hear straight from the horses’ mouth. Are you closely following an event, a show or a celebrity? Then you should look for their social media handles for news and updates. These sources are 100% correct and reliable. The respective hashtags or official accounts will only give you credible information.
Search online using keywords if you are looking for a certain kind of news. For instance, if you are looking for celebrity news Naija, then looking for this keyword online will list various websites that will give you the needed information. However, you will see plenty of aggregators that post click-bait articles only to increase the views. You need to find your reliable reporter amongst these aggregators. So make sure that the website you are reading the news from are the primary reporters of the event or have correctly quoted the source that has reported the event. Lack of this information or dubious sources should be your first clue that the news is probably not correct.
We live in an information age and there is all kind of data that is flowing through the internet at all times. With so much information out there, it becomes incredibly difficult to find the one that is correct and reliable. This is why you should go the extra mile to look for your material so that your knowledge is 100% authentic.
