Norwegian news site take a quiz to test your basic understanding before allowing a comment
A news site in Norwegia is asking visitors to take a quiz prior to sharing their opinion using comments. Those people who want to leave some opinion about an article would have to prove their basic understanding about it.
One live example of this is Norwegian broadcaster NRK’s website which takes a 15 seconds quiz. The creator of this quiz algorithm thinks that this also helps the angry visitors to calm down. People often form their opinions quickly and this short quiz would make sure that they do know about every aspect of the published article.
We thought we should do our part to try and make sure that people are on the same page before they comment, – said a journalist
The extra time is meant to give people some more time. This added time in most cases will change people opinions.
