Do you have problems in telling the difference between effect and affect?

No. Affect is the verb. Effect is the result.

No but read newspaper articles and you’ll find many so called professional journalists do.

No, never. To affect is to influence negatively

Inthink the dictionary should be changed to only ine spelling and that’s effect, we don’t need both wirds too confusing

Affect is most often used as a verb meaning “to have an impact on,” "to influence." Effect is most commonly used as a noun meaning the result, an outcome. “The tornado will affect our picnic plans," BUT “The effect of the anesthetics can be harmful for your heart." Effect can also be a verb meaning produce, make it a reality.
It seemed to effect change in social life,

This takes me back to my school days and knowing when to use affect or effect was a major problem for most people.
The best way I can describe it is as follows.
Affect is a verb and means change.
Effect is primarily a noun and means result.
The problem is that effect,in some cases,can also be a verb meaning to cause something to happen.
For example,the catching of coronavirus was effected by having dirty hands.
Hope this is a helpful explanation.

If you understand that one is a noun and the other a verb you shouldn't!
