More news about the topic

A new course from UN Verified and wikiHow teaches how to fight harmful misinformation. Everybody knows somebody who shares misleading or questionable posts. But many people have shared misinformation without knowing it. This course helps to slow the spread of harmful misinformation online.

Verified was launched by the United Nations in response to the COVID crisis to cut through the noise to deliver life-saving information, fact-based advice and stories from the best of humanity. Like the virus itself, misinformation spreads from person-to-person, heightening the risk to health and spreading fear and division. By promoting and sharing Verified messages, people are playing a crucial role in spreading reliable information about COVID-19 to their friends, families and social networks, with the goal of saving lives and countering misinformation.

wikiHow is the world’s largest website on a mission to help every person on the planet learn how to do anything. Partnering with 1,000+ experts from a wide range of fields ensures content is accurate and based on well-established research and testimony.
