Facebook and Instagram users are set to encounter labels on AI-generated images within their social media feeds as part of a broader initiative in the tech industry to discern between authentic and synthetic content.

Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is collaborating with industry partners to establish technical standards for identifying AI-generated content, starting with images and eventually expanding to video and audio.

The move reflects a growing acknowledgment of the challenge posed by the proliferation of AI-generated content online, raising concerns about misinformation, including potential harm during elections and the creation of non-consensual fake images.

While Meta's move is seen as a positive step in acknowledging the challenges posed by AI-generated content, experts caution that it may not cover all scenarios, potentially creating a false sense of security if certain tools or providers are missed in the identification process.
