Facebook To Safeguard From Fake News In Future

Facebook has outlined how it plans to safeguard against fake news in the future.
The social network’s latest report explains how it has had to expand security focus from just blocking hacking, malware and spam attacks.
It categorized different types of misinformation as “false news”, “disinformation” and “information operations” – which respectively are incorrect stories claiming to be true or incorrect content purposefully spread.
There are three main ways Facebook has observed the spread of false information happening – through targeted data collection, content creation and false amplification.
To fight targeted data collection, Facebook will provide a set of customization security and privacy features, including notifications to specific people if they have been targeted, proactive notifications to people who have yet to be targeted but are at risk, direct communication with likely targets and to notify and educate people who may be at greater risk.
