Fact-checks increasingly appear in multiple places online beyond our websites: on Facebook as part of the Third Party Fact Checking Programme, in search results via ClaimReview, in apps and read aloud by voice-activated virtual assistants.

This panel will explore the sustainability of current arrangements, whether more could be done to coordinate how our fact-checks appear on different online platforms, and what internet companies could be doing in addition to current efforts to tackle misinformation online by scaling fact checks.
