In a blog post this week, Facebook said that it will begin fact-checking photos and videos in order to further prevent the spread of misinformation.

The social network said that these kinds of content are particularly compelling since they’re visual and can easily be manipulated by bad actors.

The company says that they will be working with third-party fact-checking partners such as academics and government agencies who are experts in evaluating photos and videos and trained in visual verification techniques, such as reverse image searching and analyzing image metadata.
