Facebook today announced major changes to their 'newsfeed' which 2 billion people use monthly. Now, Facebook plans to begin asking each user to rank their trust in various news organizations.
CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg today said the social media platform will prioritize “trustworthy” news outlets on your Facebook stream, in an effort to counter “sensationalism” and “misinformation.”
That's a wiggly way to say they're doing yet another goofy thing to address the fact that everyone now knows our elections could totally be stolen again, even though Zuckerberg never admitted any culpability for Facebook, and that came after he denied many a time that such a wacky thing was possible. What? That's crazy! Only it happened, and he was warned, and he let it happen anyway, because profit.
Friday's big announcement is the second major shift to the Facebook news feed this month.
They're grabbing at straws.
From the Washington Post:
The trust rankings will emerge from surveys the company is conducting with its users and is an effort to combat fake news and misinformation that spread across the social network before and after the 2016 election. The changes will also promote local news sources. Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said the company itself is not “comfortable” deciding what news sources are the most trustworthy in a “world with so much division.”
Good luck with that, America. It's not like you have much choice.
