MMfD Executive Director Asad Baig conducted the training session with the teams of Geo’s Election Cell and Geo Fact-Check.

The Toolkit comprises a set of tools developed by MMfD to help newsrooms monitor social media platforms for organised disinformation on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, and WhatsApp (public groups), and analyse trends to help them proactively fact-check misinformation.

The resource will allow journalists to stay abreast with the rising misinformation on platforms and will be deployed in selected newsrooms in Pakistan. MMfD has been working to help newsrooms and journalists cope with ever-increasing misinformation on digital platforms and has been developing solutions and building skills to improve journalistic fact-checking.
