SIFTing Misinformation Online

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 system (SIFT) is how simple and memorable it is:

  • Stop
  • Investigate the Source
  • Find Better Coverage
  • Trace claims, quotes, and media to the original context
