Keeping up with the latest news, information and analysis on key topics can seem impossible, especially as organizations become geographically dispersed and more employees work remotely.

Human Content Curation Helps Prevent Spread of "Fake News"

by Leonard Hancock on February 2, 2017

Combining AI and an editorial team can prevent "fake news" and other unreliable information from influencing business decisions.


Not all content is created equal. Moreover, not all content can be trusted. New York Times followers received a sharp reminder of this axiom on Sunday, January 22, when OurMine, a hacker “security” group, infiltrated one of the media organization’s Twitter accounts. OurMine tweeted a fake news brief through the New York Times' video account (@nytvideo) claiming that Russia had launched a missile attack against the United States. The source was supposedly a “leaked statement” from Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Times quickly removed OurMine’s fake tweet: “We deleted a series of tweets published from this account earlier today without our authorization,” they reported via Twitter. Unfortunately, not everyone seems to realize that not all content can be trusted.

Guest Blogger Zena Applebaum Discusses the Shift from Content Aggregation to Content Curation
