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.
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.
