What is the project

Comprova brings together journalists from 24 different Brazilian media companies to identify and explain rumors, fabricated content and manipulation tactics that were aimed to influence the 2018 elections..

What is the goal

Comprova identified and aimed to undermine manipulation and amplification techniques online. The workflow was designed deliberately to encourage collaborative investigation that may continue beyond the election.

Who is it for

Comprova was designed around mobile technology and sent project debunks on social media, and in particular WhatsApp, informing voters about the information they saw online. We plan to study how information is exchanged.
