In other news, edited or photoshopped pictures are being flagged down as fake by Instagram. The platform recently announced a feature that lets users flag content that is potentially false.

Reportedly, Instagram is starting to flag photoshopped images or digital art. Instagram had mentioned it uses a combination of technology and feedback from users to flag false photos.

Seems like Instagram would have to upgrade their technology to better differentiate the ones that are false and the ones that aren’t, if the photos are being flagged from their end.
