The FaceBucket Challenge


If you accept The FaceBucket Challenge, you must:

A) Promise that from now on, you will not share any alleged facts on social media without first reading the Wikipedia entry likely to contain confirmation of the alleged fact;


B) Share a video of yourself putting a bucket over your head.


The FaceBucket challenge is intended to spread awareness about media literacy, especially social media’s potential for spreading misleading information.

As participants in social media, we have a responsibility to the others in our networks to not disseminate an inaccurate portrayal of the world we live in. ¬†This is especially true when it comes to political or ‘loaded’ topics where widespread misinformation can lead to negative¬†consequences for large numbers of people.

Also, it’s kind of funny.
