Hello Checklisters! A big welcome to our new subscribers; it's great to have you here! Our effort is to bring you misinformation trends and updates from around the world. This week has definitely been eventful. We're watching Facebook's suspension of misinformation-spreading accounts in Myanmar, Russia, Vietnam and Iran, and the possibility of major privacy loss for social media users in India.
This week Meedan and partners gathered around the world, for a developers retreat in Bahia, Brazil, and for meetings with collaborators in Delhi and Mumbai, India. We are working on building tools that can increase ways for journalists and civil society organizations to better communicate with the public.
