Co-Inform :  Misinformation is a common problem in all media, but is exacerbated in digital social media due to the speed and ease with which it can be spread: the social web enables people to spread information rapidly without confirmation of truthMisinformation can be devastating to the smooth functioning of public order. One of the detrimental consequences of misinformation is when it devalues and delegitimises the message and voices of public institutions as well as experts. For instance, the widespread prevalence and persistence of misinformation in contemporary societies, such as the false belief that there is a link between childhood vaccinations and autism, is a matter of public concern.
