Fake news in social media is a pressing issue. The goal of this project was to mitigate the impact of fake news by developing recommendation systems that can recommend fact-checking URLs to “guardians”. We created three recommendation systems, improved the GAU model, determined the best recommendation system, and developed a web application that facilitates use of the recommendation systems.
