The project stood out for its innovative method of information analysis and distribution. Regarding information analysis, Factual aimed to include new technologically intensive tools, namely Artificial Intelligence, to build the project as innovative and efficient as possible.

In regards to communication, Factual gave priority to differentiated forms of communication delivery, through comic strips, Tv programmes, social media videos, and podcasts. The project also had a powerful component of dissemination in social networks, namely in new media such as Tiktok, Twitter and Instagram, where different sorts of content was broadly disseminated.

The Factual also carried out several activities of civil society education, by conducting workshops and Media Literacy activities for the younger audiences.
