Always Fact Check Your Memes. Facebook Is.
You log onto your social media feeds and get sucked into a never-ending scroll through memes and viral moments. And while memes can be highly entertaining—especially at 1 a.m. when you’re supposed to be resting up for work—they can also be misleading.
“We know that this kind of sharing is particularly compelling because it’s visual,” Facebook stated in a recent blog post. “That said, it also creates an easy opportunity for manipulation by bad actors.”
Which is why Facebook will now be fact-checking audio, text and captions contained in your favorite memes.
“Many of our third-party fact-checking partners have expertise evaluating photos and videos and are trained in visual verification techniques, such as reverse image searching and analyzing image metadata, like when and where the photo or video was taken,” Facebook said. “Fact-checkers are able to assess the truth or falsity of a photo or video by combining these skills with other journalistic practices, like using research from experts, academics or government agencies.”
