Instagram is finally giving disinformation, hoaxes and conspiracy theories the same treatment as Facebook does. The company announced that it will down-rank posts that have been debunked by fact checkers as part of its effort to fight misinformation in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Facebook, on the other hand, has been working with third-party fact-checkers to debunk and bury posts since 2016.Instagram is finally giving disinformation, hoaxes and conspiracy theories the same treatment as Facebook does.
