TechKnow With Tantra: Alt News

In this age of fake news and post-truths, it is imperative to fact-check before you believe or forward data. Alt News is a fact-checking app and website which checks facts and misinformation viral on social media platforms in India. It helps look-up images and videos against the database of stories that have already been fact-checked by Alt News and as well as notifies you when these get fact-checked. Checks are prioritised based on the potential negative impact of the fake news, hence frivolous content like viral memes, bollywood gossip and funny videos are excluded.
