Understanding Young People’s Assessment of Social and Automated Approaches to Misinformation Remediation

The massive, rapid, and pervasive spread of mis- and disinformation on social media has been hailed by many as a threat to democratic processes and human rights across the globe.

My dissertation aims to better understand how young people engage with flags to misinformation from sources such as social cues and automated tools in order to offer insights into how to build better credibility assessment tools.
