University of Michigan: U-M tool measures ‘iffy’ news on social media in time for 2018 election

University of Michigan: U-M tool measures ‘iffy’ news on social media in time for 2018 election. “As the crucial mid-term election approaches, the University of Michigan Center for Social Media Responsibility offers media and the public a tool to help monitor the prevalence of fake news on social media through a Platform Health Metric called the Iffy Quotient. A web-based dashboard that shows the Iffy Quotient for Facebook and Twitter, dating back to 2016, will be updated regularly.”
