Abstract [en]

Along with the Internet and the increased flow of information that follows, it’s now a fact thateveryone have the ability to publish information that could theoretically reach hundreds ofthousands of people. Several studies point to similar problems and believe that Internet usersgenerally lack the knowledge required to assess the credibility of various web content. Thismeans that the need for a tool to help users with web credibility assessment have never beengreater. With this report we try to study the effects this kind of tool would have on the usersand to what extend they are affected by it. We have performed a quantitative survey study inwhich the majority of the questions concerning which one of two news articles therespondents considered to be the most reliable. This was done in between two groups thatwould act as control groups for one another. They were also unaware of each other’sexistence and the respondents were recruited voluntarily through Facebook. The study showsthat visual representation of articles web credibility has little to no effect on the subjectsresponses apart from two major genres. Future studies should examine these specific genresand their impact on web credibility assessment.
