Sobrevivendo nas Redes (Surviving on the networks)
The "Surviving the Networks" project aims to strengthen civic culture in Brazil by offering information and strategies on how to better inform oneself in social networks. This includes a Facebook page, book and other social media resources to counter disinformation. After all, in order to survive in the networks, it is necessary to learn how platforms work, to identify and not divulge false news, such as trying to protect the virtual space from the action of false profiles, the formation of opinion bubbles and destructive polarization.
Share the Facts
The Share the Facts widget provides a new way for readers to share fact-check articles and spread them virally across the Internet. The compact Share the Facts box summarizes the claim being checked and the fact-checkers’ conclusion in a mobile-friendly format. The widgets have a consistent look but can be customized with the fact-checkers’ logos and ratings, such as Pinocchios or the Truth-O-Meter.
