    Basically its a gate to banning anything they deem inappropriate even if its true, Controlling Media wasn't enough, So now they are back controlling Social media, Soon you will see this happening with twitter and others aswell, We are never free, Don't forget that..

    No no no, why does everybody have to turn everything into a conspiracy theory?

    Less reliable news on Facebook = less credibility associated with Facebook, which at least a small portion of their user base will care about and in turn spend less time on Facebook, or be tempted to log off when they see ten bullshit clickbaits in a row. If people stay on Facebook for longer, they're served more ads, which means more revenue for Facebook. Also, it's not Facebook deciding whether a story is true or not, it's independent, nearly-unbiased sources.

    They're just trying to make more money dude, not take over the world with their "selective media censorship".

    I understand you, But I am only saying this after youtube started de-monitizing video's and not paying for it because they didn't think it was making money:::: Kinda fits right in that equation if you thin ::::
    Something to look at.,

    Right, but did you read about the retard that read a fake story about the Pizza store being used for Child trafficking and then went there with an assault rifle?

    While as a marketer you want gullible ppl for stuff like this, for the greater good there is so many truly dumb ppl out there that they cannot tell what is fake and would kill someone (or more) for it,

    Buffoons exist everywhere, You just made my point you mentioned him being a retard and Ofcourse only a retard would do something like that, Do you think you would do the same if you were in his place? I don't think so,

    Because we know if it was something that extreme federal agencies would be involved,. ,

    Whether its a true story or false the act of that retard will be far from heroic,. So normal people wouldn't do something like that because we always fact check.,

    Who gets to determine the fake news when we have "journalists" colluding with the Government? This fake news will only make independent media stronger.

    They already started labeling all pro-russian news as 'fake' news. So, good-bye 'fake' news, hello global censorship.
    So, who decides what news are 'fake'?

    There is an option to report a post as fake news now so anyone can do that who is just cruising though their timeline.

    Mostly the users do. If they suspect anything is fake they can report it.

    How is this global censorship? FB is a company. They run a business. They can do whatever they want with that business including telling people what they can and cannot use their platform for.

    If it hurts their business, they're going to do something about it. The bottom line is always money. Always. Period. By letting people report these things, they give people a sense of security. That makes users trust FB more, and they'll spend more time there. Which means more money in FB's pocket.

    Questions?

    Read my reply above, and they try to include some pro-russian sites (rt.com, for example) to 'fake' lists.
    It's not only about user reports.

    I actually agree with this. The unrest is real, and people who are fed up with mainstream media will definitely seek out other news sources, especially if it fits into their echo chamber.

    I read that about snopes and manually checking but there is just too much on FB for them to be able to manually handle things and I think the users are the ones that are actually going to be the ones that make the majority of the calls.

    I may do some testing next week and see if I can flag my fake news sites there from some of my fake accounts and see what happens.
