Help us stop the spread of fabricated news.
Help us stop the spread of deliberately misleading news.
"Pope Francis Shocks World, Endorses Donald Trump." "WikiLeaks CONFIRMS Hillary Sold Weapons to ISIS." These stories and a whole lot more blew up on social media in the run-up to Election Day, spreading misinformation and drowning out legitimate news sources.
That's why we built This Is Fake. This tool both identifies articles in your Facebook feed that intentionally spread misinformation and allows you to tell your friends when they're sharing a fake story. When you connect This Is Fake to your Facebook account, you can also flag fabricated stories for our moderators. Be a good citizen of the internet and help the truth rise to the top of your Facebook news feed!
Note: We've launched this tool as a beta service. Initially, it only works inside of your Facebook feed on facebook.com, though we plan to open source it in the near future and expand to provide notifications across the Internet. We hope to partner with media organizations from across the political spectrum to help us identify fake stories.
