What can we do to reduce the spread of misinformation on social media? Evelyn Gosnell and Lindsay Juarez joined the Human Risk podcast to discuss our approach. On a recent project, we worked with social media platform TikTok, to reduce the spread of misinformation on the platform. By encouraging users to think before sharing certain types of content, we were able to reduce the spread of unverified information.
