Facebook to boost trustworthy news

Views

Facebook has announced it will prioritise news sources deemed to be more trustworthy on its News Feed.

The firm said that the social network community will determine which outlets are reliable via the use of user surveys.

Founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said news content will soon make up around 4% of what appeared in people's News Feeds - down from 5% before.

The move is the latest attempt by the company to quell the spread of so-called fake news and propaganda on the network.
