News Can Be Faked

#FakeNews has been a topic of discussion for a while. In the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019 it is going to play an important role. With our "Don't be a fool" research we plan to study the magnitude of its effects.

Take the survey!

Our pan India study will look into, not only the effects of misinformation but also the platforms through which it is distributed, its frequency and whether or not users are able to decipher it. We are collaborating with organizations and individuals in every state and union territory of India to ensure we have a good national representation.

The research tool was developed in consultation with experts both from the field and academia. Keeping the convenience and privacy of respondents in focus the data collection has been done through random sampling and anonymously. This methodology also ensure a high accuracy in the sample.

This is a collaborative effort to create awareness and curb the epidemic of Fake News. Team Social media matters will be taking our learnings to colleges and schools inform of an educational workshop.
