Business Today - - THE BUZZ -

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”.
