Fact Check

Why do we factcheck?

We rely on information to make meaningful decisions that affect our lives, but the nature of the internet means that misinformationreaches more people faster than ever before.

The human brain is lazy. People tend to believe things that put less stress on their brains or that are coherent with what they already know. This can cause us to overlook relevant facts, even when they are clearly presented.

It’s not often that we look for what we don’t see, but today it’s easier than ever to control what people do see. The evolution of mobile internet technologies over last two decades, has fundamentally changed our relationship with information and facts, but information in many of these digital spaces isn’t always true. We already know that falsehoods travel faster and farther than truth online—with the potential to incite violence, wreak havoc on financial markets and disrupt democracies.

That’s why we’ve created logically.
