FEU TO CREATE PORTAL TO COMBAT FAKE NEWS
THE FAR Eastern University’s educational research center is set to create a portal to help quash misinformation and disinformation.
The research center will launch the program to correct and verify historical information, a report by Inquirer.net said.
It will be available to teachers, students, and the public to help them determine the validity of the information.
In a survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations in December 2021, 51 percent of those polled said they found it hard to spot false information on television, radio, or social media.
Netizens lauded FEU’s move.
“yan ang school dapat my programs or advocacy ..para mabawasan social problems,” one netizen said.
“Congratulations FEU… hoping other schools and Universities will do the same,” another added.
