Misinformation monitoring and research
Track, predict, and understand the impact of misinformation across the web and social media.
Misinformation can spread across multiple platforms in seconds, and it’s almost impossible for researchers and fact-checkers to keep up, let alone predict the trajectory of a story.
With NewsWhip’s up-to-the-minute, cross platform engagement data and predictive analytics, fact-checkers can not only tell what stories are spreading, but also how big they will become.

Features that matter when tackling misinformation
Data for Democracy programme
The Data for Democracy (DfD) program is designed to support projects run by researchers and fact checkers by giving them discounted access to NewsWhip’s tools. The goal of this initiative is twofold — to help combat misinformation and disinformation in online spaces, and to encourage improved public understanding of social content engagement.
University of Michigan: Iffy Quotient
The University of Michigan School of Information and its Center for Social Media Responsibility use NewsWhip’s media and public interaction data to rank the most popular URLs to support their research into what they call the ‘Iffy Quotient’.
The Iffy Quotient is the fraction of popular URLs that come from ‘iffy’ sites, a whimsical way of referring to sites that often carry misinformation. The team was looking for health metrics that they could measure from the outside, without needing to have data provided by the platforms.
This created an invaluable resource to show just how much information that was untrustworthy in some way was floating around the web.
