In a blog post, Facebook said that they’re launching its new ways to inform users if they’re interacting with content that had been rated by a fact-checker as well as taking stronger action against those who repeatedly shared misinformation on Facebook.

According to Facebook, they wanted to give users more information before they liked a certain Page that had repeatedly shared content that fact-checkers have rated so they will see a pop up if they went to like one of those Pages.

Users can also click to learn more, including that fact-checkers said that some posts shared by a certain Page include false information and a link to more information about their fact-checking program, as this will help users make an informed decision about whether they wanted to follow the said Page.

Aside from this, Facebook said that they will reduce the distribution of all posts in News Feed from a certain individual’s Facebook account if they repeatedly shared content that had been rated by one of their fact-checking partners.

We already reduce a single post’s reach in News Feed if it has been debunked,” Facebook said in a blog post.
