Take A Crash Course

PROTECT YOURSELF

  • DON'T comment on, respond to (even with emojis), or repeat, disinformation, even to debunk it, because that amplifies the disinformation and ensures that even more people see it;

  • DO report disinformation to the site as well as to REPORTDISINFO.ORG;

  • Never click on recommended content or join suggested groups, and disable notifications to reduce time spent online;

  • Be very skeptical of any content eliciting a strong emotional response that creates a desire to act and/or share that content;

  • Seek credible sources of information (remember, a "verified" account just means the person is famous, not trustworthy, and repetition alone doesn't mean information is credible)--CHECKOLOGY.ORG can help;

  • Learn how to spot disinformation and manipulative content by visiting KNOWDISINFO.ORG; and

  • Follow the "Beware What You Share" rule to stop the spread of disinformation.
