  • We have recently developed a prototype using a social argumentation framework to allow virtual communities to check alternative facts. We use a graph-theoretic representation of an argument and also utilize semantic web and linked data principles in creating an argumentation graph. The creation of the argumentation graph is crowdsourced and mediated by expert moderators in a virtual community. We also discuss some research challenges and future applications of our framework.
