Iffy Quotient

The Center for Social Media Responsibility (University of Michigan) maintains the Iffy Quotient (not affiliated with this site), a measure of the low-credibility content amplified on Facebook and Twitter, based on trust-ratings by Newsguard and Media Bias/Fact Check). This graph charts the percentage of top 5K social media posts that link to unreliable sources:

CoVaxxy

The CoVaxxy tool, from the Observatory on Social Media (Indiana University), that “visualizes the relationship between COVID-19 vaccine adoption and online (mis)information.” Credibility ratings are by Media Bias/Fact Check and Iffy+. Compiled tweets are for the week ending 2021-02-21. Generally reliable sources are in purple, unreliable in orange.
