Facebook expands fact-checking program with machine learning
Facebook is rolling out its fact-checking program for "related articles," more broadly using machine learning, a Facebook spokesperson tells Axios.
- The spokesperson says Facebook's machine learning tools have gotten better at detecting more potential hoaxes to send to fact checkers since running tests for several months.
- The rollout will use updated machine learning to detect more potential hoaxes to send to third party fact checkers.
- For example, if an article has been reviewed by fact checkers, they will show the fact-checking stories below the original post.
