Reporting on disinformation is predominately focused on Facebook and Twitter. This panel will consider the challenges surfacing on less discussed, but still very influential, platforms. How should journalists handle content spreading on Pinterest and Instagram, where people search for inspiration rather than information? How can journalists counter disinformation on platforms driven by virality algorithms like TikTok, or via YouTube where hour-long conspiracy broadcasts can feature as recommendations? And as podcasts continue to grow in popularity, how much attention should be paid to platforms like Spotify? What methods can be used to monitor, verify and respond to disinformation circulating on these often private, personalised spaces?
