VOM LÜGEN UND BETRÜGEN
In journalism it is standard to research and ensure the given information is correct. Looking at information on the internet, especially on social media, posts are unlikely to be questioned. This is one of the reasons why Fake News spread more easily and faster than we think. Articles from friends or posts that confirm your opinion on something are often believed without thinking twice about its validity. Clickbaiting, filter bubbles or socialbots accelerate the spread of this false information.
By creating a website and an additional campaign on social media, younger people between the ages of 18 and 25 can better educate themselves in this area. The information on the website is displayed in different ways. Therefore, the user can choose to study by reading, playing a quiz or watching videos. Among other things, they can learn what fake news is, how it is spread or what to do about this problem. The aim of this website is to bild a healthy skepticism towards information on the internet.
