BBC - Make world news a global experience / 2014

News is easily amplified in the digital age. This means that unreliable news slips and spreads just as easily. Sharing unreliable news online has a spiralling effect. Even more people believe it to be true simply because they see it circulating in their social circle. Targetting how news circulates online is therefore key to fighting unreliable news. Our solution, BBC Newsboy, is an app/browser extension that lets anyone fact-check news seamlessly. It gives BBC readers the power to debunk fake online news, and sets new standards for news content management in a connected age.
