How You Can Help Combat Misinformation

1. Think

Always ask yourself:

“Is this information correct?”

2. Check

Always check the source.

Was the story reported by multiple sources?

3. Share

Is the information accurate?

Go ahead and share it!

Why do people trust emotions more than facts?

Monitoring the dissemination of facts, and the creation of facts by each other in society is without a doubt crucial for the prevention of misinformation. However, we must also understand the human role in wanting to believe and spread misinformation: it is only natural to seek the affirmation of beliefs.

Why do people believe in ‘fake news’ and share it on social media?

Misinformation, lies, falsehood and fabricated stories on Twitter are penetrating deeper, farther and faster than truth and accurate information.

Co-Inform team gathers in Stockholm.

On December 4th and 5th 2018, Co-Inform multidisciplinary Consortium gathered in Stockholm to track the progress of the project and to define a common methodology for the workshops taking place in early 2019.
