Why did we create SoT FLAGGED IMAGE?
Fake news can take many forms; often manipulated images are shared exponentially in a matter of hours or days. These images play on our emotions to affect our behaviours. SoT believes that it is essential to be able to quickly Search & Cross-Check with Reputable 3rd Parties to be the most Informed before sharing an image to your friends and family, and that’s why we created SoT FLAGGED IMAGE.
How does SoT FLAGGED IMAGE work?
Example: On your Facebook feed, you see an interesting image, and you want to share it with your friends and family.
Step 1: Before you share the image, you can get more contextual information from Reputable 3rd Parties with a RIGHT-CLICK on the IMAGE - SoT BLUE ICON – SoT Flagged Website & Image.
