Online media literacy

An online media literacy experiment will take on social media disinformation about substance use

Even adults can believe misinformation about substance use, so a professor at Washington State University is launching an experiment to see if a media literacy infographic might help make 18-29 year-olds more skeptical. She is requesting your help to collect misleading or outright false social media-based misinformation messages about alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, or over-the-counter sleep meds for her online media literacy experiment. Please email examples to Professor Erica Austin by late August.

Thank you!
