Zuckerbergs fake video may also be a test of Facebook after the company refused to delete the fake video of Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Facebook claims that it will not delete false news, but will reduce its influence on the site and display information from fact checkers.
A spokesman for Instagram said: We will treat these contents like all the error messages on Instagram. If a third-party fact checker labels it as a fake video, we will filter it from Instagrams recommendation pages (such as Explore and hashtag pages).
Lead Stories, a fact-checking agency, called the video art and said in a post that it would not hurt the transmission of the video if it was tagged with sarcasm. The user will see the warning label indicating that it is not real.
Artists Bill Poster and Daniel Howe collaborated with Canny Advertising to produce the video. In their Instagram post, they said the video was created using CannyAIs Video Dialogue Replacement (VDR) technology.
The creators said the video used Zuckerbergs video clip of 2017 about Russias intervention in the U.S. general election. On the right side of the video is the CBS logo, which says Zuckerberg: Were improving advertising transparency. A CBS spokesman has said that the company has asked Facebook to remove this unauthorized counterfeit CBSN trademark.
Canny has also worked with Boster to produce fake videos of Donald Trump, President Kim Kardashian and others. Zuckerbergs fake video was released four days ago, and Boster did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
This is not the first false video about Zuckerberg. As early as 2018, filmmaker Andrew Oleck posted a video on Facebook that appeared to show Zuckerberg saying he wanted to delete social networks, which led many users to think it was true.
Meanwhile, U.S. lawmakers are concerned about the use of deep fraud technology in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The House Intelligence Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on media manipulation and deep fraud on Thursday. (Small)
