This is a small “service” project with the goal of raising awareness of crap information. Crap information are everywhere especially on social media where it can be spread easily without a second thought. Through better awareness (“crap detection”) and responsible content sharing, worthwhile information will arise, better benefit everyone.
This project is using social media due to its potential for quick dissemination of information throughout the internet. “Crap” is intentionally introduced along with a link to our word press site (https://detectcrap.wordpress.com/) which provides other examples of real world misinformation as well as resources on how to better crap detect.
