FEA­TURES

The Denver Post - - FEATURES -

Face­book Inc. is tak­ing a more ag­gres­sive step to thwart the spread of fake news on its plat­form. The com­pany said it has cre­ated a soft­ware al­go­rithm to flag sto­ries that may be sus­pi­cious and send them to third-party fact check­ers. If the fact-check­ers re­view the post and write a story de­bunk­ing it or giv­ing con­text, that post may ap­pear be­low the orig­i­nal con­tent on Face­book’s news feed, ac­cord­ing to a com­pany blog post.

The com­pany has been work­ing closely with fact-check­ers like Snopes and Poli­tifact. Bloomberg
