Facebook is teaming up with NU.nl and Leiden University to fight "fake news" shared on the social media site in the Netherlands. NU.nl and Leiden University will work as fact checkers, NU.nl reports.

Editors of the two Dutch institutions will be given access to a special Facebook dashboard on which they can see articles that were marked as "fake news" by users. They will then check the facts in the articles, and if they indeed turn out to be factually incorrect, the article will henceforth be marked as such.
