ABC News Launches 'The Real News About Fake News' Powered by Facebook Data

The initiative will identify fake news stories on Facebook.

— -- ABC News is launching "The Real News About Fake News" powered by Facebook data to identify fake news stories circulating on the platform and help social media users sort fact from fiction.

Facebook users will be able to report potentially false content by clicking the upper right corner of a post and reporting it as a fake news story.

We will investigate selected stories that have been identified by Facebook users as potentially fake news. Stories examined will undergo rigorous reporting to determine if the claims made are false.

Stories that editorial partners have debunked will then appear flagged in your News Feed.
