9 fake news on social media people believe and share

Our generation definitely doesn't have hunger for information. We face another problem: it is difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction.

The flow of information that our brain processes daily can cause so called Mandela effect. It is pseudoscientific belief that some false facts are true.

And what do you think about that? Do you have any interesting facts to share? If so, tell us in the comments below, please!

British Empire was not a country. It consisted of Colonies occupied by the country of Britain, far smaller than many of countries it occupied. Russia has always been the largest country.

So there are 80 Amur leopards left instead of 57. That's still too many been killed by humans.

Diane Thompson, many babies are born every day, mostly singles but sometimes multiples. But people are dying all the time, sometimes in huge numbers like air crashes or natural disasters

The British Empire was not a country. It was comprised of individual countries. The Soviet Union though comprised of individual countries was at least a solid land mass. It was therefore the biggest country in the world.

Grant McIntosh, Not sure.None of the Empire countries were full independant,even Australia and New Zealand,Canada etc. I think Britain still handled their foreign affairs.Any way,interesting.Maybe someone knows for sure.I think we(New Zealand) were still a Dominion till 1947. Dominions were not fully independant.

There is no real difference between Walt Disney and his company. The number of bridges in St. Petersburg is not important. The city is so much larger...People already answered about the British Empire. This entire collection was not worth my time, sorry.

Britain never was or is a country. Britain is the name give to the island which contains England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - all separate countries.. The United Kingdom is England, Scotland and Wales and the British Isles includes all the other outlying islands.

Diane Thompson, Actually according to many statistics gathering agencies around the world approximately there is a net increase of between 75 and 80 million humans each year. Click on the "World o meters" site and see live population changes by the second. Quite scary!

kandarpoza, just like the soviet union was never a country really, but rather an imperial power with satellite "allies".

I read this. That was a waste of time. I wasn't going to but clicked on it anyway. I am learning though.

kandarpoza, It states the USSR not Russia which is also a collection of countries. I agree that it should have read largest Empire ever.
