FakeReporter is an Israeli disinformation watchdog group established by researchers, activists, and OSINT experts.
We use a combination of professional intelligence experts and an online crowdsourced research platform to monitor and lead the civil effort against disinformation, inauthentic political influence campaigns, hate speech, and online incitement.
In the past few months we have received thousands of reports through our research platform, creating a database of online inauthentic behavior in Hebrew. Our research and publications focused on three tracks:
Election disinformation campaigns, Fake accounts & CIB
Other political & commercial influence networks
Using a three-tier crowdsourced research platform developed in-house, we combine work done by volunteers and experienced researchers to find
hidden connections online.
Two of our latest reports:In May, during Operation Wall Guardian, we began tracking down inciting extermist networks online, planning lynches and other violent acts.
A new report the NYT is calling "one a kind", showing an Iranian disinfomration campaign, working through small Whatsapp groups to gather infomration and attempt to collaborate with Israeli activists and protesters.
