Overview

Fact checking resource to help navigate the internet.

Fact Layer provides helpful contextual information on many sites while you browse the internet. Some of the features include: 1. Integration into social networking / news aggregation sites, to make it easier to tell if a news item is worth clicking into. Currently Reddit, CounterSocial, Digg, Slashdot, and Fark are supported. 2. Bias information on more than 2,000 news/media sites. 3. Information on satire, fake news, and extremely unreliable sources. 4. Article specific fact checking lookup that displays the number of factual statements that are disputed. 5. Information on around 8,000 charities. 6. Automated detection of some fake local news sites (i.e actionews3.com, channel22news.com, etc). All site information queries are done locally, meaning no information is sent to me about your browsing activities at any time.

It's a wonderful thing to have some good background on the sources ppl will throw out on SMS--immediately being able to be cautious of bias makes my reading smarter, my decisions sharper.

Check out that privacy policy. Pay attention to the world. This publisher does not disclose your information, or sell it for personal gain. There's no ads, no nonsense, and it works wonderfully. Provides proper real time in line checking - making it a lot harder to get duped by the amount of garbage out there. Keep it up, dev. Watching you create things this magical in real time has been nothing but a treat. Watch out for the gibson <3

An easy way to determine the veracity and bias of news sources that are unfamiliar to me. I can't wait for more updates!
