In recent years, Brazil and the world have been suffering from misinformation: misleading, fabricated, exaggerated, manipulated or false content circulates on the internet, aimed at obtaining financial or political gains. Threat to free knowledge, the circulation of false information threatens the strengthening of reliable communication in the political and social spheres. Due to its relevance, it was the chosen topic for the first conference of the Brazilian Wikimedia community.
The fight against misinformation is not new to the Wikimedia movement. Volunteers produce quality information and monitor the most sensitive pages to ensure that their content is always correct, checking that sources are reliable and verifying edits.
Our community seeks to increase the number of editors and the quality of information on Wikimedia projects. The more people who contribute positively, the greater the ripple effect of reliable information on the internet.
