Facebook Steps Up Fight Against COVID-19 Misinformation With New Tool


Another new programme called Get The Facts will highlight coronavirus articles on Facebook written by fact-checking partners.

  • Facebook will inform users who interacted or shared virus disinformation.
  • Get The Facts programme will highlight coronavirus articles on Facebook.
  • Facebook has been under pressure to check misinformation.

Facebook announced Thursday its many users will see tailor-made warnings highlighting facts about the coronavirus pandemic, after being accused of failing to counter the spread of outlandish conspiracy theories.

The leading social media platform has already been publishing fact-checking articles about the global outbreak through its partnerships with media organisations, including one with Agence France-Presse.


“We will also soon begin showing messages in News Feed to people who previously engaged with harmful misinformation related to COVID-19 that we’ve since removed, connecting them with accurate information,” chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement.
