As more and more older Americans turn to online news organizations and social media to get their news, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to discern disinformation from legitimate reporting. Recent research from Princeton and New York University has indicated that Facebook users who are 65 and older "posted seven times as many articles from fake news websites" compared to users who were under 29 years old (NPR, 2020). In this session, participants will learn tools to help them evaluate information sources.
