    Here are some techniques I usually use.These mostly helps me to find the true ones

    Check the site - Check whether the site on which the news has been published is a reputed one or just another normal site.Because most of the reputed sites won't upload any fake news,nobody likes spoiling their own good will!

    Check the author - There are some famous people who are known for writing good and true stuffs.The probability of fake news from them is very low so, we can trust the facts they've written.

    Check the reviews and comments -The reason to check the reviews is because it is the best way to find the public's reaction or feelings about the news.From the reviews we can get an idea about the trustworthy of the fact that has been uploaded as well as the site which uploaded the news.

    Hope it will help you��
    Do what is RIGHT, NOT what is EASY!

    Really nice tips @Sheero, When I read this a fake news that came to my mind that makes me laugh a lot I remember is about a pilot who save many life in Syria. The way it spread in social network is just amazing.
