Do you remember when 276 girls were kidnapped in 2014 from a small town called Chibok in Nigeria by Boko Haram? Apparently the Nigerian government proclaimed it as a hoax…

Even though the abduction was acknowledged worldwide through a slogan #BringBackOurGirls on social media, journalist Stephanie Busari says rescue efforts were confused and delayed, as it was reported as fake news. Using the Chibok tragedy, Busari explains on TED Talks “the deadly danger of fake news and what we can do to stop it.”
