You are making decisions based on how you want people to feel and act. Websites serve many purposes: advertising, informing, and entertaining. Websites and content may be also created to make you feel or act a certain way. Information may be incorrect, biased, or dated. It's a good idea to evaluate websites before getting too involved.
