TUTORIAL

Write your own response and share your wisdom!

The responses a user see are also submitted by other users. Here we do not have all-knowing judges, only citizens who cooperate and contribute. Think others’ response not good enough? Is there something you’d like to find out but it has not been requested yet? Write your own response and help others!

Every suspicious source is sent from an user, which is open to public for examination and response. One single request can be responded by different people, allowing each response to take a step closer to unravelling its truth.

Features

Cofacts program encourages people to become part of a chatbot for helping others. With your research, you can add your hoax busting responses into our database to help people acknowledge its lies.


Crowdsourcing

Anyone can verify and respond to other’s requests on possible hoax and upload it into our database. We encourage citizens to join our program, even invite your mom and dad to join.

Real-Time Response

Once someone respond to your pending request, the chatbot will answer you through LINE. It’s fast and immediate, you don’t even have to wait. Better yet, you don’t even need to say ‘thank you’. Ask the bot to verify for you, no need to feel uncomfortable asking it for favors.

Different Views

Knowing what’s fact and what’s an opinion. Seeing different sides of the story makes you realize your own blindspot, allowing everyone to respect each other’s perspectives.
