Frequently asked questions
How does Citefull determine the accuracy of content?
We have developed a 'known standard' inspired by international journalism oversite organizations. We then use technology to compare news content to that standard. All news content is measured on the same criteria without regard to bias. This way we can focus solely on the quality of the content.
I dont see my favorite news outlets as verified, why is this and how can you add them.
There are lots of news outlets that we have to address, and that simply takes time. The easiest way to let us know that you want a new outlet verified is to simply tell us which ones are most important to you. You can click the 'contact us' link, or you email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What is Facebook doing about fake news?
While we are not in any way associated with Facebook and we can’t speak for them directly, they don’t seem to be doing enough. Facebook has taken the stance that permits its advertisers to post anything they wish. In the event that facebook determines that content is false, they simply suppress the posts. This means that fake news is still highly prevalent on Facebook.
What is the most accurate news source?
We evaluate many sources in realtime. As these sources meet their journalistic expectations over time, their index values improve. It is important to note that any legitimate news organization can meet these expectations, it is simply a matter of accountability.
