    With the large number of internet users today, fake news and misinformation become more and more visible online, especially through social media platforms. Users’ belief in online information and news is related to trust in the information sources. To prevent the dissemination of fake news and misinformation online, trust can be supported by provenance information in online publications. We use the OurPrivacy conceptual framework to illustrate a way in which provenance can be used to help users define their trust in artifacts posted online. We also discuss the possibility to filter artifacts by only viewing trusted sources of information.
