The Instinomer fact-checking portal said on Thursday that it was an official partner to Facebook in Serbia along with the Agence France Press in combatting misinformation on that social network.

Istinomer will search the Serbian-language content of Facebook for false news and information on a daily basis, a press release said.   Instinomer Editor in Chief Milena Popovic said that she believes the portal’s 10 years of experience and commitment will help fight misinformation at global level.  

AFP Regional Director Europe Christine Buhagiar said that new operation in the Western Balkans region shows the agency’s important role.  

Facebook has worked with independent fact-checkers across the world for several years with all their partners members of the International Fact-Checking Network.
