Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Facebook Tries To Fight Fake News

  • Livetradingnews is worried that Facebook will not be fighting Fake News, but censoring real news.
  • Until now, any Facebook Page that posted a link could change the headline, body text and image that appeared in the News Feed preview. That allowed fake news distributors to bait-and-switch readers into visiting articles they didn’t expect, or make it look like legitimate news publishers were posting inflammatory or false headlines.
  • But it also let real news outlets A/B test link previews, tailor content to different audiences and update previews as news stories evolved.
  • To combat false news without stifling responsible publications, Facebook is now starting to disable the ability of all Pages to edit the previews of the links they post in the Page composer or API, with an exemption for some original publishers.
