Hoaxy visualizes the spread of claims and related fact checking online. A claim may be a fake news article, hoax, rumor, conspiracy theory, satire, or even an accurate report. Anyone can use Hoaxy to explore how claims spread across social media. You can select any matching fact-checking articles to observe how those spread as well.

To use the tool, visit the official Hoaxy website. For more information about how it works, there is an FAQ on the website.

The code behind Hoaxy is all open source and can be downloaded from the official IUNI Github page.
