Facebook is the latest US company to comply with the country’s ban on doing business with the Chinese tech company. The social media company announced it would no longer  the pre-installation of its apps on Huawei phones. According to a source familiar with the matter, this affects phones that haven’t left Huawei’s factory yet. Current Huawei owners can still use the apps and receive app updates, but new units won’t have Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram pre-installed. This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to install the apps yourself. As it stands, Huawei devices still have access to the Play Store, so you will be able to download the apps there. But if the ban continues, then Huawei will be losing access to some of the most popular apps out there.

Facebook-owned Instagram wants to limit the spread of misinformation on its platform and one way to remedy that would be to run potentially false posts through Facebook’s fact-checking partners. While Instagram won’t take down these posts, they won’t show up in the Explore tab as well as in the hashtag results page. A spokesperson for the company told Poynter, "Our approach to misinformation is the same as Facebook's—when we find misinfo, rather than remove it, we'll reduce its distribution." On top of this, Instagram is considering adding pop-ups for when people look up misinformation.
