The rise of social media platforms has introduced another widespread phenomenon—the spread of misleading information. Whether introduced organically or deliberately, misinformation threatens the integrity of democratic journalism. Because misinformation has become a serious threat to governance, it requires interdisciplinary efforts and collaboration to mitigate. To this end, Indiana University’s Observatory on Social Media (OSoMe) researches information diffusion and misinformation in media ecosystems, and develops accessible, educational resources to chart trends in real-time.

Join leading experts as they demonstrate Botslayer, a tool that tracks and detects the amplification of information campaigns. The demonstration will be followed by a discussion on how Botslayer can empower stakeholders to be resilient and conscious inhabitants of internet media.
