Facebook Builds Tool To Help Spot False & Fake News by Hustler247(f): 7:40pm On Apr 06, 2017
FB's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg on his facebook wall today made a post on how they are working on a tool to cut an edge to the viral fake and false news updates being shared on Facebook.

He said this tool will help FB users notice and differentiate between real and fake news.

Mark Zuckerberg
"We're starting to test a new tool to help you spot false news stories.

When you tap on the tool at the top of your News Feed, you'll see tips on how to spot and flag stories that are hoaxes or designed to mislead people. We worked on this with First Draft, a nonprofit dedicated to raising standards for reporting and sharing information online.

This week we also helped launch the News Integrity Initiative - a group of experts, run by the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, focused on helping you make informed judgments about the news you read and share online.

Stopping the spread of false news is an important part of building an informed community. We know our community wants accurate information. We've got more work to do, but this is another important step."
