What is the report "Credibility" indicator for and how is it calculated?

Allvoices is an unedited and unfiltered reporting platform so we want to ensure users have a sense of the reputability of the content. The credibility indicator is intended to help our community sort through uncensored citizen media and find the news that matters to them.

The report credibility is based on a combination of:

  • How the community interacts and responds to a report
  • How the community interacts and responds to a report
  • The reporter's reputation
  • How mainstream news sources support the report content

At the core of Allvoices are everyday citizens and journalists who create news reports. The proprietary credibility algorithm is an evaluation of the content and author by the community and mainstream sources. This approach merges the power of the community and the Allvoices intelligent news analysis engine to provide a reliable gauge of content trustworthiness.
