The Fact-Checking programme is in partnership with Africa Check and AFP. Both Organizations are part of a global network of fact-checking organizations certified by the non-partisan International Fact-Checking Network.
So henceforth, Facebook’s fact-checking programme would depend upon feedback received from the fact-checkers.
Local articles will be fact-checked alongside the verification of photos and videos.
If one of our fact-checking partners identifies a story as false, Facebook will show it lower in News Feed, significantly reducing its distribution.
