The Hunt for False News

Facebook Newsroom- 10.24.18 (10.19.18)

Every day, our team fights the spread of false news through a combination of technology and assessments from independent third-party fact-checkers. With every false story that surfaces, we learn a bit more about how misinformation takes shape online and, hopefully, how we can detect it earlier.
