According to Pew Research, about two-thirds of American adults say they at least occasionally get news on social media. The outcome of this thesis project is decreasing impact of misinformation on social media.

Develop the brand Fact Guide, and through the brand, provide systems to the decrease impact of the issue. The main keywords are reliable, trusted, and detail. There are also three steps, which are awareness, help, and education, to help people get involved this issue carefully. The Fact Guide brand has deliverables to help people effectively, such as news searching app, a campaign, and a media literacy education website.
