360/Digital Sherlocks

Combatting disinformation can’t be done alone; ultimately it requires a growing movement of individuals taking the lead around the world and in their own communities. It’s these Digital Sherlocks who are at the heart of our movement.  

The DFRLab has grown and support our community of Digital Sherlocks through dedicated trainings and workshops for journalists, students, and members of civil society around the world. Since Digital Sherlocks inception, DFRLab staff have trained thousands of people across six continents and 90-plus different countries on media literacy, open-source investigative techniques, fact-checking and source verification, narrative analysis, social media monitoring, and many other topics.
