Facebook changing how it identifies ‘fake news’ stories

Facebook has said it is changing how it identifies “fake news” stories on its platform to a more effective system. The social-media network had put “disputed” labels on stories that fact-checkers found false.

Instead, now it will bring up “related articles” next to the false stories that give context from fact-checkers on the stories’ problems. Facebook said yesterday that in its tests, fewer hoax articles were shared when they had fact-checkers’ articles spooled up next to them than when they were labelled with “disputed” flags.

The new approach also may help speed up the fact-checking system, which sometimes worked too slowly. Now information from just one checker can be shown next to the false story. The labelling system required two fact-checkers.
