Sifting Through the Pandemic is a site about how to recognize misinformation on social media, focused – obviously – on information about the pandemic. OneZero provides an example in this article, where someone claiming to be a doctor posted that hand-sanitizer would do nothing to kill the coronavirus (False!).
What I love about the infodemic.blog system (SIFT) is how simple and memorable it is:
- Investigate the Source
- Find Better Coverage
- Trace claims, quotes, and media to the original context
