Making it easier to verify online content
With the right tools, any social media user can determine whether information they come across online is trustworthy or not. The EU-funded EUNOMIA project will provide tools that assist users in following information hygiene guidelines. By contributing to media information literacy, the project is fostering awareness and critical thinking skills. It empowers social media users to assess the information they consume and act as human ‘trust sensors’ in their social media network. To encourage the active participation of social media users to stop the spread of misinformation, the project will allow users to vote on content trustworthiness. The number of votes appears as an indicator that may assist others in assessing trustworthiness.
