Roommates, it looks like Instagram is making it their mission to make social media real again! At least that’s what this latest development is starting to feel like. It seems the good folks over at Instagram will be doing the Lord’s work and will bring back authenticity when it comes to certain posts. IG will be implementing a new feature that will use a “combination of feedback from our community and technology” to determine if images have been photoshopped. After that, the image will go to a “fact-checker” and they’ll make the final decision.
Instagram won’t actually hide a photo that has been photoshopped. However, they will apply a “False Information” label when a fact-checker has checked it. If the fact-checkers and the content owners determine it’s not photoshopped, the no label will be added.
