The rapid growth of social media platforms has led to an easier circulation of information around the world. There are a growing number of articles proposing various interventions to attempt to curb the spread of misinformation. This systematic literature review investigates the published research on misinformation interventions on social media platforms and provides an overview of existing literature on this subject by analyzing 346 papers included in major academic databases. We identify three categories of research, namely behavioral, modeling, and technical research, and classify various approaches proposed in behavioral research into three groups based on the research perspective, namely information, users, and official channels. Recommendations and guidance for future research are finally provided.
