Abstract

As we navigate into a more digital world, information gets easier to produce and share, and the credibility of information comes into question. Individuals are exposed to misinformation on a regular basis, from multiple sources, and this misinformation can cause changes to behaviour and identity, and can have detrimental effects on individuals’ health and well-being. As misinformation spreads online, current research has focused on platform-based interventions to address these beliefs and to have a positive change on misinformed individuals’ behaviours. My thesis explores how technology can support trusted individuals such as family members in their efforts challenging misinformed belief. Through this work my aim is to build a better understanding of how family members currently address misinformed beliefs, and where the limitations with current digital interventions lie, to create a tool to assist these conversations within families, and ultimately reduce the impact misinformation has on our society.
