Facebook’s New Fake News Policy Explained


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Facebook is trying to crack down on fake news. John Iadarola and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"AFTER COMING UNDER heavy public criticism for not taking full responsibility for how it may have affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, Facebook has finally laid out how it plans to crack down on fake news. The social network’s corrective updates are starting to roll out right now, and while they won’t solve the problem overnight, they’re an important first step.

“We believe in giving people a voice and that we cannot become arbiters of truth ourselves, so we’re approaching this problem carefully,” Adam Mosseri, vice president of product management for News Feed, wrote in the blog post announcing these changes. “We’ve focused our efforts on the worst of the worst, on the clear hoaxes spread by spammers for their own gain, and on engaging both our community and third party organizations.”

Facebook’s strategy combines crowdsourcing similar to how Facebook polices mature content, reliance on third-party fact checkers, and financial disincentives for fake news hucksters. Each aspect of the rollout has its strengths, but also invites a few questions."*

    I would prefer being able to block the site that hosts the content of the
    link, and NOT the person who posted it.

    • Posted by Erik Dumas, at Reply

      You can already do that.

      +Erik Dumas They must have moved where that option was in the interface. I
      do remember blocking some annoying listicle heavy sites, but that option
      seems to have disappeared.

      I’m pretty sure all you have to do is click a little arrow in the corner of
      the post and one of the options will be to hide stuff from that page (but
      not the person who shared it).

    If they’re going to do this, they need an official process to review it;
    having the masses arbitrarily decide what is fake and what isn’t could make
    things worse.

      libtard women flagging a video that triggers them will be enough

    I can’t believe that people would get their news from Facebook in the first
    place. I don’t have a Facebook account, but it seems like the equivalent of
    chain emails.

      women dude, women…..making women dumber than they already are

    I’d have no problem with this if it was done fairly but facebook gets to
    decide which stories get fact-checked once they’ve been reported as false.

    Why should I believe that facebook won’t be biased in it’s choices of
    stories to be fact checked?

    I think you’ll end up with a situation where large well-known media brands
    will be given a lot more free reign compared to smaller or more
    controversial media outlets.

      That’s pretty much what Facebook did, they put ABC News and Politifact in
      charge of “Fact Checking”, who are about as credible as I am….being a
      random cat on the internet.

    facebook sucks ….

  15. Posted by Anth Alex, at Reply

    Breitbart people have hired a whole ton of people to control bots which in
    turn will flag anything and everything they want to. The strategy of
    flagging may not work.

    but who checks the fact-checkers?

    PS: I caught onto the fake logo scams online decades ago.
