30 days of human comms: day #44: Gateshead Council shoots down a street light urban myth

For a while I’ve been noticing that social media admins have been drawing a line in the sand.

Rather than letting fake news drift and look the other way people have been being proactive.

‘That’s wrong and here is the answer,’ the approach runs.

This post from Gateshead Council is marvellous shooting down an elaborate urban myth.


The 1,900 likes and 1,500 shares shows the thumbs-up that people have given.

Class, be more like Gateshead Council.
