Viral misinformation is contagious and dangerous.

Join the fight and stop the spread.

Our Mission

Junkipedia is designed to centralize the collection of problematic content so that everyone with a stake in solving this problem can benefit from a shared understanding of what threats exist and how to respond to them.

How It Works

Junkipedia gives journalists, researchers and civil society organizations powerful tools to collect, track, analyze, and respond to mis- and disinformation spreading online. You can collect tips quickly and easily via tiplines, tag and classify each item submitted, and analyze narratives and identify trends in the data.
