Facebook just made it harder for you to share fake news

Facebook has started to roll out a new tool in its war against fake news which facts check the stories you post, although it doesn’t yet appear for everyone.

Mark Zuckerberg vowed to tackle the fake news controversy after the social media site was criticised for becoming a breeding ground for the spreading of misinformation.

      So far the score is about 83,234 to 0 in the 4chan vs Faceberg battle for hearts and minds. This time they’ll get it right!

        4chan and BCF are the only two sources of news I trust anymore.
        That doesn’t mean that I trust everything I see at 4chan, but they seem to have everything before anyone else.

    Will social media giants be able to continue to use its power to limit Americans legitamate 1st Amendment freedoms unchallenged? Or, will citizens eventually use antitrust laws to prevent their 1st Amendment freedoms from being circumscribed by social media giants?

    Zuckerberg must fear it will damage his bank balance.
