Zuckerberg hints at third-party news verification to fight ‘fake news’ on Facebook

Facebook may entrust a third party with verifying content to stop so-called ‘fake news’ from spreading, its head said in a post. The social network, which is many people’s primary source of news, has recently been criticized for spreading misinformation.

Outgoing US President Barack Obama launched the war on ‘fake news’ last week, complaining that it may have had an adverse effect on the presidential election. He claimed that social media hosts “much active misinformation” that “looks the same when you see it on a Facebook page or you turn on your television.”

There is speculation that fake news about presidential candidates may have played a considerable role in swaying the minds of voters who ultimately elected Republican Donald Trump. Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg initially dismissed the notion as “pretty crazy,” but this week Facebook and Google both said they would change their ad policies to prevent fake news websites from using their systems.



LOL All this is about is they think the Marxist/Communist lost the election because of fake news. Sorry! There's more than enough dirt on Hillary to keep her out of the Oval Office. They're just mad because they helped Trump get elected. That won't happen again, if they can help it.  

CNN, NYT... MSNBC... all FAKE news!  They need to face the fact that the people are sick and tired of their nonsense and being lied to.
