FACEBOOK RATING USERS’ TRUSTWORTHINESS
Facebook has started rating its users’ trustworthiness so that the social network would know how much to value user reports when they say that a particular news story might be fake. The Washington Post first reported the rating system. Facebook has said in a media statement that it does not maintain a “centralised reputation score”. Instead, it is part of “a process to protect against people indiscriminately flagging news as fake and attempting to game the system”.
