Instagram on Monday went global in its fight against misinformation, making alliances with fact-checkers around the world to expose deception in shared photos or videos.
The Facebook-owned social platform launched a fact-checking program in the US early this year.
“Today’s expansion is an important step in our ongoing efforts to fight misinformation on Instagram,” the service said in an online post.
“Photo and video based misinformation is increasingly a challenge across our industry, and something our teams have been focused on addressing.”
Instagram began working with third-party allies in the US to help identify, review and label bogus posts.
