BRAVE Extension helps you to Share Wisely (https://onebravething.eu/share-wisely/). Just fire up the extension when you are reading a news article and you'll get detailed information, including a Content Quality Score, that will allow you to make a wise decision about sharing the article with your social media connection or your friends.
As you scroll, you see news articles from big-name outlets, and probably a few from blogs and forums that you are visiting regularly or not. What draws your attention the most? What news article will you linger over the longest? While many of these news posts are harmless, others could be damaging to you and your entire network. Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, whether it’s intentional or not. Often coming in the form of fake news articles, unintentionally misleading statuses, or satire content, this misinformation becomes dangerous when people act on it. What’s the big deal? If you share a fake news article, each of your social media connections is at risk for acting on false information.
