Social Networks have become a part of everyone’s life. Everyone lives a secondary life on different social networks. To combat fake news on Instagram, the Facebook-owned platform has started hiding fake or photoshopped images shared on the feeds.
According to various reports, Instagram is hiding photoshopped images. Instagram is a popular photo-sharing platform where different types of professionals especially photographers marketize their profession to gain more clients. The new update has made them worried as they can not share their work on Instagram by now.
Many users have started seeing “False Information” tag when they see a photoshopped image on their Instagram feed. Instagram has also confirmed that they have introduced this new feature against illegal activities done on the platform using photoshopped images.
The company is using advanced image-matching technology to find out the fake images. Instagram and Facebook are now capable enough to find out fake images or photoshopped images using this new technology. When the platform shows False Information tag, you will also be provided with a link to the alternative source from where you can fetch the same image.
Those of you who continue sharing such fake images will be published by the giant. Their accounts will be removed from hashtags and other benefits. The explore page of their profiles will also be banned and their profiles won’t be able to show up.
