Facebook Brings In Independent Fact-Checkers In The UK.

: 01/11/2019 - 13:07

Facebook is bringing in independent fact-checkers in the UK for the first time - to try to combat fake news.

The charity FullFact will review stories, images and videos which have been flagged by users.

Posts will then be labelled as true, not true or a mixture.

The focus will be on the misinformation deemed to be the most-damaging - such as false stories around terror attacks.
