Social Observatory for Disinformation and Social Media Analysis

Project description

Providing a toolkit against the diffusion of misinformation on social media

Social media has taken the world by storm over the past 15 years or so. The instantaneous diffusion of fake news and misleading information across these channels is, unfortunately, a sign of our times. This phenomenon poses a risk to democracy, national security and the social fabric, undermining society's trust in the information. The EU-funded SOMA project aims to shed light on social media dynamics and the relationship between social media and other sectors. The project aspires to create a solid environment to increase awareness among stakeholders on social media topics and develop tools and instruments for the social media community.
