About the Misinformation category

Posts in this category will be used to respond to misinformation being spread in social media.

Many times these posts get a lot of traction quickly without a comprehensive response being compiled and dispersed before much of the damage is done.

It would be useful to post the original link or content that is being responded to. We need to be as objective as possible in our response. The goal is to get beyond a personal back and forth.

I think a good approach would be to have the topic aimed at one particularly fast spreading post. We need to address the issues within that particular post in a factual way and formulate a response on the first post. Comments below the post will be used to improve the response in a cumulative fashion and discuss how to distribute the response.
