Join the #FactFlood

Give a click, and help wash disinformation off social media.

Disinformation spreads because it gets people’s attention. Then Facebook, Twitter and other platforms push it harder. And so on.

Every day we’ll post a #factflood– simple info that debunks a lie.

Share and repost it, it will take back some of that attention going to disinformation.

#FactFlood Fundamentals

no poop

1. Ghost the lies.

If you know it’s a lie – leave it alone. Lies on social media get your anger to spread. Every click, comment, share or reaction, makes it more visible to more people. No hate clicks or shares.

2. Share facts.

Credible info needs your clicks, comments and shares! The more good info we share, the more people will see it and the less room there is for lies.

Look for the daily #FactFlood to get started.

3. Take a sec to check.

We all get fooled sometimes.

Try it! Tell us how it goes.

So, what is my next step?
