Facebook's Third-Party Fact-Checking Program

Our Approach to Integrity on Facebook

Fighting misinformation is an ever-evolving problem and we can’t do it alone. In 2016, we started our third-party fact-checking program, working with IFCN-certified fact-checkers around the world to rate and review the accuracy of content on our platform.

The fact-checking program is one part of the three-part approach we take to addressing problematic content across the Facebook family of apps.


When content violates Facebook’s Community Standards and Ads policies, such as hate speech, fake accounts and terrorist content, we remove it from our platforms. We do this to ensure safety, authenticity, privacy and dignity.


We want to strike a balance between enabling people to have a voice and promoting an authentic environment. When misinformation is identified by our fact-checking partners, we reduce its distribution within News Feed and other surfaces.


We apply strong warning labels and notifications on fact-checked content so people can see what our partners have concluded and decide for themselves what to read, trust and share.
