Learn how Facebook and AP are combating misinformation and how news organizations can replicate this initiative in their own reporting to local communities.
This month, a news partnerships manager at Facebook joined us to discuss how the platform is combating misinformation. The webinar also included our own efforts in fact-checking stories and how news organizations can replicate this initiative in their reporting.
Watch the webinar and learn:
- How last year’s U.S. presidential election and changing audience behavior impacted our “AP Fact Check” strategy.
- The tools available to journalists to track and grow their performance on Facebook.
- Examples of false stories that have gone viral and how to spot them in your local community.
Our weekly roundups of “AP Fact Check” stories are routinely among the most-engaged pieces of content we publish, proving there’s still a strong desire for authentic, verifiable journalism.
