Don't share anything that is a press release couched as a news story from a politically based website.

Don't share science stories you don't understand.

When in doubt post cat videos.
This. This is also the reason that when I was a teacher I would always do an entire unit on media and information, despite my superiors being angry that I wasn't hitting standards for 2 weeks. Kids today are generally not taught the skills they need to parse good information from bad information. There is more accessible info than ever, on more platforms, and in a 24hr cycle. There needs to be a much, much better effort to educate the youth in these matters.
