CLAIM: National Geographic is taking part in a fundraising campaign on Instagram which will bring $ 1 to each “thing” on jobs that will benefit the Amazon after the fires.

THE FACTS: National Geographic is not taking part in a campaign distributed on Instagram to raise money for the Amazon. Some Instagram accounts began sharing the fake information campaigns as online attention started on jobs under the fires. The accounts encourage users to share their jobs. Stephanie Otway, a spokesperson for Facebook, who owns Instagram, said, “we are investigating this scam and we will take the accounts and content that promotes it.” Use the image post showing forest fire Amazon rainfall in 1989 and set out to read text “1 like = $ 1.” At the bottom of the photograph, they put “in partnership with @natgeo. “The job says“ we will bring $ 1 to @natgeo to restore and replant all of the Amazonia. ”Meg Calnan, National Geographic's senior communications director said in an email that National Geographic was not taking part in any such campaign. “We are not affiliated with these organizations or social media accounts and we are working to address these inaccuracies,” she said. There were also a number of accounts that were looking for a good deal of Spanish misrepresentation.

DEMAND: White and white white photo Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota shows in uniform undergoing military training.

THE FACTS: The Associated Press took the photo of a woman who had an automatic army on 25 February 1978, before Omar was born. The photograph shows that it was built at a military training campus at Halane, Somalia. Spread the photo widely on Facebook with information that falsely identifies Omar as a picture with a gun. “Ilhan Omar said she hates guns !!!” she reads the text of any Facebook posts that use the photo. “Jihadi Omar says at the Terrorist Training Camp!”. Omar, a Somali American-born Muslim refugee was elected to the US Congress last year, on 4 October 1982 – more than four years after the photo was taken. In a late Wednesday night return, Omar described false online claims about the photograph as “dangerous and disruptive.” Omar's spokesperson forwarded the AP to the colleague's tweet. The heading AP does not name the two in the photograph but describes the person who checks his gun as a Somali army recruit. She is wearing a garden and a uniform with a white belt. He describes the person who is standing behind her as a tutor.

DEMAND: The Court of law of North Dakota stands for voting rights from Native Americans.

THE FACTS: Facebook jobs are wrongly classified by the fact that Native Americans have reached voting rights in North Dakota. They are still entitled to vote in the state. However, a change in North Dakota voters' identity law was criticized for the possibility of preventing Native American votes. North Dakota law requires voters to provide ID at address listing, but not every resident has a tribal land. Prior to 2013, voters who did not have one could sign an affidavit confirming their eligibility. The State Republicans achieved this provision after Democrat Heidi Heitkamp claimed a Civil Service seat in 2012 with the help of the votes cast by Native Americans, which account for 5% of the state's population. The change in the rule poses legal challenges as many people use mailbox bookings, not street addresses. Last October, weeks ahead of the mid-term elections, the US Supreme Court responded to an emergency appeal by the tribes by upholding state voter recognition rules. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeal U. also upheld state voter recognition laws earlier this month in ruling, which prompted the inaccurate statements on social media. Tribes that are recognized as federal tribes can assign tribal members. The Secretary of State for North Dakota also told voters in the predominantly rural state that they can establish or identify an address for their home by contacting the county's 911 co-ordinator. The AP reported last year that there were at least few Native Americans casting ballots because of the new rules but that the number of people who voted in three counties had Native American reservations.

DEMAND: Instagram is changing its privacy policy. To stop the platform from receiving user photos, they must repeat a message saying they do not allow the platform or related entities “my pictures, information, messages or mail, in the past and future use. ”

THE FACTS: The false job was widely distributed on Instagram early this week and shared a number of high profile figures. “Everything you have made available now from today, even deleting messages…,” requires the job falsely. “If you don't publish a statement at least once that will allow you to use your photos implicitly.” Tuesday, Adam Mosseri, who decided to Instagram, opposed the claim, posting: “Heads up! If you are looking at meme claiming that Instagram is changing its rules tomorrow. It's not true. “Actors Rob Lowe and Debra Messing, as well as Energy Secretary Rick Perry, were among those who shared the job. Now in a job, Perry, who oversees the country's nuclear arsenal, wrote, “You can claim! #nothanksinstagram. ”Version of the toy can be found on Facebook going to 2012 at least, when a similar post comes with a surface. “There's no truth in this job,” said Stephanie Otway, a spokesman for Facebook, who owns Instagram, for the AP in Wednesday's e-mail. Instagram says in its data policy that it collects some information from its users. “We collect the material, communication and other information you provide when you use our Products, including when you register your account, create or share content, and by message or communication. with others, ”his state policy.
