    Fake news orbits the planet in an instant on social media. Is the truth keeping pace? We want to make sure it does. Our global TruthBuzz challenge aims to invent new ways to help verified facts reach the widest possible audience.

    We want your creative solutions for taking fact-checking beyond long-form explanations and bullet points. We’re looking for ideas --- from everyone, not just journalists -- that turn fact-checking into engaging, visual and interactive stories that are instantly understandable and shareable.
