Last 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's presidential elections in the USA.

Later it became known that Facebook is exploring ways in which to slow the spread of fake news on the social network. One of them is to label publications as false after receiving relevant communications from users and third parties. The social network is also working to improve their ability to identify fake news.
