Instagram to start labeling photo shopped images with “False Information” warning

According to HypeBeast, the app will begin determining the authenticity of an image using “a combination of feedback from our community and technology.”

The image is then passed on to third-party independent fact-checkers, and if they determine that the image has been altered, a “False Information” warning message will be added to the post.

However, the images won’t be hidden. 

We don’t hide content because it’s photoshopped, we apply a label when a fact-checker has rated it, a spokesperson for Facebook (who owns Instagram) said.
Upon review from the fact-checker, they changed the rating, so it is no longer being labeled as false on Instagram and Facebook.

Although the images will not be removed, they will be hidden from Instagram’s Explore and Hashtag pages and automatically flagged in future posts. 

Users can still view the image and read up on why the photo was hidden.
