Debunk Misinformation Creation

I chose to create two infographics. One on how to fact-check possible misinformation in your feed and another that goes in-depth into how one can utilize the SIFT method to evaluate information that they find online.

My intended audience is everyone, as everyone is susceptible to misinformation. This is why I chose to utilize the infographic format. They are easy to read, tend to utilize inviting aesthetics and graphics to encourage reading, and are easy to post on social media feeds to encourage shared education.

(Source list for the information presented in the infographic at the bottom of this post.)
