Facebook To Deal With The Problem Of 'Fake News'


Share this article

From next week users will be asked whether they trust what they are reading and seeing - with sources ranked according to the feedback.

Sources will then be ranked according to the feedback.

"There’s too much sensationalism, misinformation and polarization in the world today. We decided that having the community determine which sources are broadly trusted would be most objective."
