The Future of Fake News

Fake news” has been named the word of the year by Collins Dictionary due, in part, to President Trump’s popularizing of the term. Wikipedia describes fake news as information written and published with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity or person in order to gain a financial or political advantage. The public cannot seem to escape the mention of fake news in the mainstream media or in this polarizing political climate. However, as bad as it seems to be, Jim Stroud hypothesizes that it will become much worse and proves it by pointing out jaw-dropping technology that (no doubt) will be implemented in the near-future. | Subscribe to this blog now!

“The Jim Stroud Show” is going in a new direction. Join me?

Jim Stroud Show on TVIf you have been following my blog for any length of time, no doubt you have noticed my videos. For the most part, my videos focus on sourcing, job search strategy and occasionally, I veer off on other topics (typically tech or social media related). Well, I’ve decided that 2018 will be a year of my doing something different as it relates to my personal brand. Without a doubt, I will continue writing about recruiting related issues. However, my video topics will expand far beyond that.

Here are a few things on my mind that are sure to be discussed in my video series in the very near-future.

# What is the future of fake news?
# Would people worship an AI god?
# What if your credit score and social network popularity were one in the same?

My plan is to produce a video twice a month with each episode having you scratching your head in reaction to information you had not heard before or considered from my angle. I am quite excited about it and hopefully, you will be just as enamored with the end result. That being said, PLEASE, please, pretty please share my videos, leave comments and subscribe to my blog. The success of my hobby is dependent on your support.

I wanted to hold off on posting any new videos until 2018 but, I cannot help myself. Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the new direction taken by “The Jim Stroud Show,” where I explore the future of work, life and everything in-between.

Thank you in advance for your support!
