Independent fact-checkers on Facebook are signatories to the non-partisan International Fact-Checking Network Code of Principles. Independent fact-checkers investigate stories in a journalistic process meant to result in establishing the truth or falsity of the story.

That is, if forcing people to do something they don’t want is really the purpose.
