Teaming Up Against False News

Today, we’re kicking off a new collaborative process with outside experts on misinformation. The goal: to arrive at externally-validated, consistent approaches that have the potential to help Facebook catch greater quantities of misinformation, more efficiently.

They also lay out some of the challenges that lie ahead — and why collaboration is so key.
