Facebook Adds Disputed Alert to Fight Fake News

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 7, 2017

Facebook‘s tool to combat fake news is here. The social network is adding a red warning sign whenever users share disputed content. False stories aren’t labeled as false. The stories are simply labeled as disputed.

The disputed content alert appears directly below the link to the story.

See examples in this story.

This may be one way to combat anti-vaccination stories – and other health scares/scams.
