WhatsApp Watch
Our WhatsApp Watch platform allows researchers to collect data from public WhatsApp groups to observe shifts in the information ecosystem in real-time. 

We work in close collaboration with journalists, researchers, and community partners to ensure the resources we create are contextualized and useful to their needs. We help draw attention to timely issues and the stories that really matter to our partners.

We're putting the finishing touches on an interactive tool for exploring the use of WhatsApp by political campaigns. Stay tuned.
