Part of the REVEAL work consisted of dealing with and researching the legal situation with regards to verification of user-generated content, the analysis of information residing in social networks, accessing respective APIs, making use of hosted content (e.g. for news reporting) and such like. It included shedding light on areas such as data protection, privacy, the “right to be forgotten” and much more. In this article of our “REVEAL Results series” we summarise work undertaken by CITIP at KUL Leuven in the legal domain, and point to respective resources.
Here, we provide interesting links from around the web that discuss issues regarding the verification of content from social media: What tools, services and initiatives are there? Who is doing what? What’s the state of affairs regarding eyewitness media and related issues? Here is our list for this week.
