Dispelling Misinformation and Disinformation on Social Media

Back to Agenda

Looking forward to this session? Share it!

Rather than using digital tools to inform people and elevate civic discussion, some individuals have taken advantage of social and digital platforms to deceive, mislead, or harm others through creating or disseminating fake news and disinformation. This can greatly generate fear within a community and/or harm the reputation of an agency. 

This session will:

  • Help participants understand the important distinction between misinformation and disinformation.
  • Review relevant case studies that impacted municipalities and law enforcement agencies.
  • Evaluate and learn how to implement a number of strategies to promote timely, accurate, and civil discourse in the face of false news and combat disinformation.
