A platform for monitoring how election misinformation spreads through WhatsApp groups
We are building the tools necessary to persistently monitor WhatsApp groups for misinformation and other types of harm. WhatsApp Watch will collect data from public groups and analyze metadata to uncover networks of bad actors and other emerging trends. We are launching pilot studies in Brazil and India, where the platform is most widely used.
If you are a journalist based in these regions, and would like to learn more about WhatsApp Watch, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
