Discussion of the 'personal dose' in Colombia The civil society and the official narrative

September, 2020

Campaigning on Twitter

July, 2020

This report presents the results of the analysis by Linterna Verde in association with the FGV DAPP’s Digital Democracy Room of behavior on Twitter between July 1 and October 27, 2019.

The “all-terrain vehicle” myth

July, 2020

While the debate about WhatsApp in Colombia has made headlines, there are not many inputs on the topic. In 2018, Linterna Verde published a report on WhatsApp in the presidential elections and this time, we wanted to focus on last year’s regional elections, where territorial conditions, the scope of the campaigns and the use of the platform presented a different scenario. Specifically, we address two questions: How was WhatsApp used in regional campaigns, and what relationship was there between that use and disinformation?

Politics (on WhatsApp) is dynamic

August, 2018 

We completed an investigation to understand how political content circulates on WhatsApp. It seems clear that this platform has a role in the dissemination of political misinformation. But how? What roles do the campaigns play? How much did “chains” affect users?
