Istinomer, a Serbian fact-checking website, has gone one step further by launching a Google Chrome extension that allows users to highlight fishy claims they see anywhere online and submit them without leaving the pages they’re on.
This on-the-spot submission process is especially easy for readers of the Serbian outlet Danas, who can ask for a claim to be examined without even installing the extension. Danas is partnering with Istinomer to make submitting a claim to fact-check on the site as easy as sharing it on social media (the video below is in Serbian but understandable with no knowledge of the language).
Placing the fact-checking button near the social buttons seems like a sound choice to attract readers’ attention.
