Learn to spot fake news and hoaxes
Principal Investigators at IU: Filippo Menczer (IUB Informatics)
The news literacy game places users in a simulated social media environment where they can share, "like", or fact-check articles. Once users complete the game, they are given feedback on their score, earning points if they share stories from legitimate new sources, or if they fact-check articles from false or misleading reports or other types of misinformation.
IUNI hosts and maintains Fakey, along with other OSoMe tools.
