In early May this year, Instagram began examining the facts of third parties in the US to identify, verify, and mark incorrect information. And now Instagram expands the fact checking feature worldwide so that fact-checking companies can analyze and evaluate misinformation
Fact-checking pop-ups can be found in Instagram stories. In the case of incorrect posts, images are obscured with warnings about invalid information. Under the warning, you can also see an option that shows why the image is blocked. In addition, after tapping the options, you can check details of fact verification, content authentication, and more.
If content from third-party verification that verifies facts is not classified as true, Instagram reduces distribution by removing it from the Explore and Hashtag sites. Labels attached to posts can be seen in their feeds, profiles, stories and instant messages to people all over the world
Instagram uses “Image Matching” technology to detect other cases of incorrect content and to apply labels. This reduces the spread of misinformation. This label also includes links to fact-checking reviews, as well as links to articles from authentic and authentic sources that show why the publication is fake.
Instagram uses a combination of community feedback and technology to analyze the content that needs to be sent for review. Source
