Fake News is Just the Beginning – Why the Internet Needs a Fix
When the Internet first emerged, it was mainly a tool for scientists, researchers and government officials to connect with one another and share information. Back then, online users tended to know one another, and they were able to connect screen names with real-world identities.
The Internet did not stay that way for very long. In just a few years, what started as a secure way for government officials, security experts and research scientists to communicate was opened up to the wider world. Once the commercial potential of the Internet was fully realized, there was no putting the genie back in the bottle. For better or worse, the Internet had outgrown its original purpose, and now ordinary users are logging on, gathering information, sharing stories, selling products and having fun.
Almost from the beginning, the anonymity of the Internet seemed to bring out the worst in some people. Anyone who remembers the chat rooms and IRC boards have some not so fond memories of online trolls and other ill-behaved individuals. That trolling has not gone away. In fact, it has changed and matured along with the Internet, and today any foray into a news site message board or discussion group can be a pretty intimidating experience.
These days much of the talk is of fake news, but unreliable information is only the tip of the Internet iceberg. The spreading of false stories and incorrect information may well have influenced the most recent presidential election, but its implications go far beyond politics. There is plenty of fake news out there, and plenty of reasons to fear the anonymity of the Internet.
Besides the fake news, there are tens of thousands of fake profiles and false identities on the Internet. From people hiding behind the security of a false identity to spread unfounded rumors to bots creating fake social media profiles to increase the perceived value of a brand or company, these online falsehoods are everywhere you turn.
It is clear the Internet needs a fix, and that fix may finally be here. Authenticated Reality has launched The New Internet this year and promises to create a safe and secure community where the users all know one another. To access The New Internet, download the browser or app for mobile. The New Internet will create a more civil online society and stop the scourge of fake news and the sharing of false information.
By requiring users to verify their identity, The New Internet browser promises users a better, safer and more productive online environment. This authentication of identity is the natural fix for an Internet that is clearly out of control, with abuses of anonymity, the spreading of false information and the creation of fake news stories.
Instead of hiding behind a screen name and taking on an online persona, the users of this new service will be identifiable, and accountable. If they choose to spread a fake news story or act in an uncivil manner, the other members of their secure Internet community will be able to call them out by name. No more creating online falsehoods, no more hiding behind a fake profile and no more pretending that there are no real-world consequences to bad online behavior.
It is clear that the Internet needs a fix, and now that fix is finally here. Anonymity has its place, but the use of fake profiles has been detrimental for the Internet and society as a whole. With this new solution, The New Internet browser seeks to fix the Internet and create a better, and more civil, more authentic and better online world.
