Hoaxy is a platform to track misinformation. The Hoaxy system employs web crawlers to extracts links to articles posted on fake news websites and links to their debinking on fact-checking sites. It then uses social media APIs to monitor how these links spread through online social networks.
The collected data is stored on a database for easy retrieval and analysis. A dashboard will provide interactive analytics and visualizations.
Hoaxy hasn’t been released to the public yet, but we have been collecting data for a few months.
