As part of our ongoing quality surveys, we will now ask people whether they're familiar with a news source and, if so, whether they trust that source. Facebook initially proposed fighting false stories by letting users flag them.
Publishers with higher ratings will get priority in users' news feeds, a move that the company says will cut down on "sensationalism, misinformation and polarization" in the media. That shift has empowered Facebook, but has been challenging for many news organizations and put the company in an uncomfortable position of deciding what news users should see.
A change of some sort seems necessary in the wake of the role Facebook played in distributing "fake news" - as well as political ads paid for by Russian troll farms - prior to the 2016 presidential election, not to mention Congress's subsequent call for the site to answer for its actions. Today the CEO followed up with an announcement that the site will try to identify and highlight "trusted sources" based on community feedback. Is this latest change to let users rank news source trustworthiness a good approach? He said the company made a decision to rely on member surveys as the most "objective" way to rank trust in news sources. Because as Facebook is now making increasingly clear, we're all, ultimately, responsible for vetting our own media consumption, even on social media.
