Facebook to let users rank 'trust' in news sources

FB

To do so, he said, Facebook decided to rely on member surveys as the most "objective" way to rank trust in news sources. Facebook announced Friday it will ask its two billion users to rank their trust in news sources, in its latest attempt to combat the spread of misinformation on the social network. "This update will not change the amount of news you see on Facebook," he said. "My hope is that this update about trusted news and last week's update about meaningful interactions will help make time on Facebook time well spent," Zuckerberg said.

Facebook to prioritise 'trustworthy' news based on surveys - Thai Tech by Thaivisa.

FB

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc will prioritize "trustworthy" news in its feed of social media posts, using member surveys to identify high-quality outlets and fight sensationalism and misinformation, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Friday. The company, which has more than 2 billion monthly users, said its members, not experts or Facebook executives, would determine how news outlets rank in terms of trustworthiness. The change will affect not only links posted by news outlets but also news stories that individuals share, Facebook said. Zuckerberg said he settled on the idea of surveying Facebook users after rejecting having the company itself rank news outlets' trustworthiness.

Facebook to emphasize 'trustworthy' news

FB

Associated PressJanuary 19, 2018. Facebook is announcing a second major tweak to its algorithm, saying it will prioritize news based on survey results of trustworthiness. The company said in a blog post and Facebook post from CEO Mark Zuckerberg Friday that it is surveying users about their familiarity with and trust in news sources. Facebook announced last week that it would try to have users see fewer posts from publishers, businesses and celebrities, and more from friends and family. The changes come as Facebook has struggled to deal with fake news on its platform and Russian-linked content meant to influence the 2016 U.S. elections.

I Can't Fucking Believe How Dumb Facebook's News Feed Update Is

FB

“Today I’m sharing our second major update this year: to make sure the news you see, while less overall, is high quality,” Zuckerberg wrote, decrying the “sensationalism, misinformation and polarization” that Facebook had an outsized hand in creating. Today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced how his platform will handle news, and it’s quite possibly the stupidest solution imaginable. As part of our ongoing quality surveys, we will now ask people whether they’re familiar with a news source and, if so, whether they trust that source. If people cannot tell truth from bullshit, why are those same people being used to rank publications on a scale of trustworthiness?
