Default Facebook doesn’t want to eradicate fake news....

...Facebook doesn’t want to eradicate fake news. An article from Graham Cluley:

Facebook doesn't want to eradicate fake news. If it did they'd kick out InfoWars
Quote:
SOCIAL NETWORKS GIVING SICK CONSPIRACY THEORISTS A PLATFORM TO SPREAD HATE.

Facebook would like you to believe that it’s serious about ridding its platform of fake news. So how come InfoWars, one of the most notorious outlets of sick conspiracy theories, is allowed to maintain a page on the social network?

Facebook will "demote" fake news! From BBC News Technology:

Facebook will not remove fake news - but will 'demote' it - BBC News
Quote:
Facebook says it will not remove fake news from its platform because it does not violate its community standards.

The social network is currently running an advertising campaign in the UK that declares "fake news is not our friend".

But it said publishers often had "very different points of view" and removing fabricated posts would be "contrary to the basic principles of free speech".

Instead, it says posts that it deems to be fake news will be "demoted" in the news feed.
