Facebook to mark fake news
Facebook is exploring the ways in which it will be possible to slow the spread of fake news on the social network. About this stated the head of the company Mark Zuckerberg.
One of those ways is to label publications as false after receiving relevant communications from users and third parties. Facebook is also working to improve their ability to identify fake news.
In addition, the developers want to help users to submit reports about the news. Currently to do this: click on the icon dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the post, choose the "Report the post" and click on "It's a false news story".
We will remind, earlier this month, Facebook was accused in the fact that the company is not effectively fighting the spread of false information in social networks. According to critics, this was one of the factors of the victory of Donald trump in the election.
The results of the study BuzzFeed has shown that a fake news often exceed reliable from the point of view of the number of likes, comments and reposts on Facebook.
