Facebook clamps down on fake news stories
(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it has taken steps to clamp down on "hoaxes" and fake news stories that can spread like wildfire on its 1.35-billion member online social network.
The company said it had introduced an option to allow Facebook users to flag a story as "purposefully fake or deceitful news" to reduce the distribution of news stories reported as hoaxes.
I don't think that it will be too difficult to evade this kind of censorship. Just change the title of the article, slightly edit the article, copy and paste article on a separate webpage, and/or any combination of the aforementioned. But yeah, bad news overall.
What about the mainstream media hoax industry, the biggest manipulators and liers on the planet?
