Facebook has introduced its new system for flagging fake news following the widespread criticism of the platform in its failure to combat inaccurate news during the 2016 USA election. In November, a source told Gizmodo that the social network's fight against fake news before the election was undercut by a "fear about upsetting conservatives".
The feature is now only available in the U.S., where the 2016 elections were thought to have been swayed by fake stories appearing on the social network. First spotted by Gizmodo, the Disputed label is now being tacked onto stories after they have been flagged up by users.
When Facebook announced it would roll out fake news labels a year ago, it described a system that relied either on its own software or on users to catch possibly fake stories that would then be reviewed by real journalists to determine if the story was false or true.
Facebook has not released information about the tagging system's release in other regions. The current review process is created to ensure that Facebook operates exclusively as a platform while the responsibility for defining "fake news" relies on Facebook's partnered fact-checkers. When two or more of the organizations decide the story is fake news, the "disputed" label will be connected to it.
Combating fake news without completely going down the rabbit hole of censorship is a delicate matter.
