I am used to share articles that I find interesting on the net using social media, mainly Twitter (twitter.com/giovannidepaola) and Facebook.
Very true. There are even people who started fact checking for fun and ended u becoming professionals, like Italian (but Switzerland-based) blogger Paolo Attivissimo:
He has been doing his “antibufala” (hoaxbuster) activity since 2003, and got more almost ten million page views over 350 fact-checking investigations!
Yeah Alberto, Attivissimo is a perfect example.
Allow me to mention a new platform which enables every citizen to help with his contribution to public fact-checking. Here https://factchecking.civiclinks.it/en/ in English and Italian.
If a netizen thinks that a a piece of news could be false he can easily publish the link of the article and with the contributions of the users it is possibile to establish if it is false or not.
