RUMOUR mongers continue to thrive in Brunei, exploiting new media technology and disregarding social etiquette.
As the social media is flooding with
unfounded reports, authorities are faced with a hard task in dousing the
wildfire of false news every time it starts spreading.
The latest authority to come out to battle
the social media rumour mill is the Department of Economic Planning and
Development (JPKE), Prime Minister’s Office, which yesterday issued a
statement to quash a ‘report’ circulated on the Internet which claimed
that prices of goods in the country are going to skyrocket soon.
