Advanced Social Media Workshops

Fact-checking is vital for a social media environment clean from misinformation! The U.S. Embassy sponsored a visiting U.S. expert who hosted a series of workshops for journalists and Iraqi youth in (Erbil, Dohuk, Al Sulaimaniyah and Baghdad) that covered advanced social media and digital tools. Participants engaged in digital verification exercises and received instruction on the use of tools and best practices for countering fake news.
