Separating fact from fiction: understanding the most effective tools and techniques for verifying social content.

In this workshop, led by two of First Draft’s verification experts, participants will learn how to check the provenance, date and location of images and videos sourced from the social web. How do you know whether you’re looking at the original? Can you track down someone’s telephone number simply from their social username? How can you find out when a photograph or video was created, rather than simply when it was uploaded? How can you double check that the footage was captured at the location of the news event?

Organised in association with the First Draft News Coalition.
