Over the past few years, misinformation has exploded online. Hoaxes go viral on social media after most breaking news events, manipulated videos dupe internet users into sharing them and fake news sites publish fabricated stories and cash in on the traffic. But as the amount of fakery on the internet has expanded, so too have tools that help users verify information.

Former Poynter fact-checking reporter Daniel Funke and former digital tools reporter (current Poynter managing editor) Ren LaForme will share some of the best tools, tips and methods for verifying information online.

Learn how to check the veracity of images using tools like RevEye and Google’s Reverse Image Search, pick apart viral social media videos with InVid and YouTube Dataviewer and assess social media profiles with Account Analysis and StalkScan. We’ll also share more advanced tools for more experienced debunkers.

This webinar was originally broadcast on July 11, 2018. A replay is available for those who enroll in the webinar.

Who should enroll

Anyone who is interested in reading and sharing truthful information online should attend this webinar. Professional reporters and editors will benefit from using these tools in their fact-checking processes, while media students and professors will glean best practices to use inside and outside the classroom. General news consumers will also learn techniques to quickly tell whether or not the social media posts they’re about to share are true or not.
