Facebook is about to let you know if you've liked, shared or commented on any bogus claims, stories or cures about COVID-19 in order to stop the spread of misinformation.In a few coming weeks, if you've liked any type of harmful, debunked content, you'll get a message from Facebook that will direct you to the World Health Organization's Mythbusters page.A global advocacy group conducted a study of 104 different Facebook posts between January and March that were verified false by independent fact-checker. The study showed that the posts were shared nearly 2 million times and had racked up 117 million views.
