In the latest extension of Facebook’s parental hand to shield us from ‘harmful’ content, the platform has announced that it will start filtering out photoshopped images on Instagram. reports citing foreign media that the feature, first discovered by San Francisco-based photographer Toby Harriman, will see suspect posts tagged with an ominous black ‘False Information’ banner. As with the platform’s current concealment of posts filtered out as ‘sensitive content’, users will have the option to view the blocked images, as well to learn more about the reasons underlying their flagging.

So how exactly does the platform discern between ‘authentic’ and altered images? According to Instagram, it uses a vague-sounding “combination of feedback from our community and technology,” with earmarked photos then passed onto third-party fact-checkers to determine whether or not they’ve been doctored.
