YouTube to offer fake news workshops to teenagers




YouTube is launching a new campaign to tackle internet safety and issues around fake news, the video streaming site has announced.
The company says it will put on workshops aimed at 13 to 18-year-olds in cities across the UK.
The plans, promoted as part of Internet Citizens day, also aim to raise awareness of issues around free speech, comment moderation and online abuse.
YouTube has been criticised in the past for how it tackles hate speech.
Last month the UK government removed its adverts from YouTube amid concerns they were appearing next to "inappropriate" material on the video-sharing site.
