Verification: Emerging Technology

☀☀☀☀ For journalists trying to verify information, social media can be a blessing. Or not, if it’s false. Google helps verify social media posts. For example, when given a video/photo source, you can verify where the video was actually shot or where a photo was taken. The verification tutorial only takes about 5-10 minutes to complete, and provides you with tools either through Google or through trusted partners. Once finished, journalists can also learn other tools in the Google verification course. — Chris McCrory
