Social media has revolutionized communication in every sphere – communication has now become immediate, global and more diverse than ever. All of which has brought about countless benefits, as well as certain risks: there is more noise, more hoaxes, more confusion, in short: information disorder. Verification is a public antidote to the disinformation that pollutes the information ecosystem and public life. To put this chaos in order, we need to acquire skills and knowledge that previously were confined almost exclusively to journalists, but which have now become a public need. Here you will learn the key aspects and tools to examine and verify information, images, videos and social media accounts.
