We Live in the
Misinformation Age

Black communities are constantly flooded with misinformation on social media. All it takes is a like, a share, or a comment, and harmful info in your newsfeed can spread out of control.

The Truth Check Media Literacy Series helps you protect your social media timeline from fake news. All you need are a few key skills:

Practicing Click Restraint

 If it seems suspect, just don’t click it. Get more info on the topic first. 

Read Beyond the Headlines

Don’t get fooled by clickbait. Read the entire source before sharing.

How to Do Lateral Reading

Investigate sources as you read by opening new tabs to check info as you scroll.

Reverse Image Search

Use Google’s reverse image search tool to identify potentially fake photos and find the original source.

How to Start Reading Upstream

 Ask the questions: Who produced this? Where did this come from? Is it accurate?
