 Expanding its fact-checking programme, Facebook has started allowing Instagram users to flag false content on the photo-and video-sharing platform.

“I’m proud that, starting today, people can let us know if they see posts on Instagram they believe may be false. There’s still more to do to stop the spread of misinformation, more to come,” Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, said in a tweet on Thursday.
According to a report in Poynter.org, while the roll out of the feature has started in the US, it should be available for all international users in about two weeks.
Fact checkers will review the posts once users flag content as false.
But even if fact checkers flag those content as false, the posts would not be deleted from the platform, said the report.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
