I spend a lot of time having discussions with people and hearing their views on current affairs. I do find that a lot of the opinions may be diluted and steered toward a particular agenda, whatever the Media decide it will be that day. I try and avoid reading news articles on Social Media, for this reason.
So what a great move for Facebook to try and filter fake or misleading news from their content. After all, a lot of people in this modern day and age do take Social Media news as fact. So hopefully this will be a great step in getting everyone on the same page. Excuse the Pun...
The main reason for commenting on this is that Social Media has become a huge part of our lives, at home and in business. We have spent a great deal of time at 2 Circles working on our online presence and Social Media marketing so it is great to see that the Social Media giants are keeping up-to-date and making it more viable for every day use
Actually, it’s not that great, but not that bad either. Facebook has launched a new feature on its news feed which will use artificial intelligence to try to reduce misleading, sensationalist or fake news. The News Feed will now assess the relevance and authenticity of a post on how well received it is by others in your network. If there is a topic which you have previously indicated interest in this will normally feature on the News Feed, though now Facebook will measure the number of comments to measure the authenticity of the post, and judge whether it is more or less relevant to you, dependent on who commented on it.
