Tech companies tackle fake coronavirus news together
The American tech companies Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Reddit, Twitter and YouTube are joining forces against fake news about the coronavirus.
“We help millions of people stay connected, fight fraudulent and misinformation about the virus, and prioritize reports from authorities.” The companies report this in their statement. Other companies are called upon to join the initiative.
Details of the joint approach are still missing. Sharing already discovered fake news is obvious. The American tech companies have independently started tackling fake news around the virus and marking reliable messages.
