Facebook has failed to identify fake news. In case of considering any news ‘fake’ shared in own platform, Facebook used to show a red signal as ‘controversial’. But, from now on it won’t happen so. Since the last one year this process didn’t prove fruitful enough.
Facebook displayed this ‘controversial’ icon for the first time in December 2016. But now, users won’t see this icon anymore beside the news shared in Facebook. On the contrary, other related articles will be displayed with the shared news. Source: BBC
