We want to explore ways on how to deal with and counteract unintended misinformation sharing on digital platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp.

We understand technology solutions are not enough. We are aware not all people know how to spot a malicious piece or have good fact-checking experience. We also know, there won't be a single, magic solution. Given all these, we want to come up with practical, personal strategies to strengthen the critical thinking skills within our networks.

To get the session started, we will present a few cases with their appropriate context, based on research done before the Fest. We'll then ask the participants to join us in exploring ways on how to deal our spamming uncles.

This is a Learning Forum session.
