What Is Junkipedia?
Junkipedia enables researchers, journalists and advocacy organizations to monitor and analyze the spread of misinformation through social media.
Junkipedia is digital public infrastructure for civic listening. Understanding how problematic content such as misinformation, hate speech, or junk news impact society requires shared tools to identify and archive that content. Junkipedia is a technology platform that enables manual and automated collection of data from across the spectrum of digital communication platforms including open social media, fringe networks, and closed messaging apps. The system is powered by the active engagement of a large and diverse network of civic-minded stakeholders from the civil rights, journalism, and academic communities. Funding for Junkipedia will provide increased technical capacity to support more platforms and users, and will enable an expansion of efforts to recruit and train a wider range of contributors to the system.
