"Internet users must be able to differentiate truths, half-truths, lies and opinion before forming their own judgment. We must be more cautious when sharing information on social media. We must continue to use the internet and social media as a platform to promote unity and prevent it from being hijacked," said Najib in a blog post on Friday.
