Instagram is now ‘fact-checking’ and removing memes, including one that sought to make fun out of climate activist Greta Thunberg’s hypocrisy.
Back in May, Instagram announced that it would begin “fact checking” and removing memes.
The Facebook-owned platform said it would rely on 52 global “fact checking partners” to censor “false photos and memes on its platform,” according to Poynter.
This was no idle threat, with Instagram now ‘fact checking’ and censoring embarrassing memes about climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
One of the memes shows Greta enjoying a meal on a train while hungry African children watch from outside the window.
