One of the new feature that Facebook is tackling is the Fake News in circulation. We could recall, that Germany fines Facebook €500,000 for each fake news.
And this usually happens during elections of countries. This isn’t the first time, Facebook has been sued but this time around, they have decided to tackle it head-to-head!
Statistics shows that Facebook was complicit in Russian election meddling after the company recently revealed to congress that propaganda had reached more than 120 million people during the 2016 election.
And of course, we all know that Fake news move more faster than the actual news! Facebook now lets users know if they liked or followed any Russian propaganda pages during the US election.
Facebook today said: “be creating a portal to enable people on Facebook to learn which of the Internet Research Agency Facebook Pages or Instagram accounts they may have liked or followed between January 2015 and August 2017,” which should be available to users by the end of this year.
