UGC Verification and Moderation – Social Media content without worrying about its reliability

With the rise of user generated content over the past years also comes the difficulty of verifying this content created by actors outside one’s own news organisation. Access to increasingly sophisticated editing and content management tools have made it easier to present unrealistic information and images as facts.

This issue has recently become even more pressing in the form of ‘fake news’. News organisations have to carefully verify third-party content before publishing it and this requires both time and specific skills.

We’ve selected a number of startups that propose verification and moderation solutions for user-generated content.
