'Disputed by multiple fact-checkers': Facebook rolls out new alert to combat fake news | Technology | The Guardian

"Facebook has started rolling out its third-party fact-checking tool in the fight against fake news, alerting users to “disputed content”.

The tool was first observed by Facebook users attempting to link to a story that falsely claimed hundreds of thousands of Irish people were brought to the US as slaves."
