Since our recent infodemic, I’ve embraced fighting misinformation mayhem as a mission. And fortunately I’m not the only one. There are many promising developments. At the same time, we’re learning more about the consequences of misinformation and disinformation. The Content Science team and I have rounded up what’s happening to share with you so we can both celebrate progress and realize how much work lies ahead.
We’re seeing more results from research exploring techniques to stop it and more perspectives from a range of stakeholders.
Fact checking sites like Politifact and Snopes are still going strong (thank goodness), and more organizations are working to help people recognize or sidestep misinformation.
I’m never in favor of excessive regulation. But we can’t have the free-for-all we witnessed during the pandemic on social media and with crypto. So I’m glad to see more steps toward accountability for platforms and industries that have proven they can’t govern themselves effectively.
So, cheers to the progress we’re making in understanding and fighting misinformation. I look forward to more.
