    With the upcoming British general election in June joining the French and German polls, concern continues to mount about the way fake news spreads and potentially influences voting. Facebook, a big focus of that concern, has stepped up its efforts by announcing it’s looking to hire someone to lead on tackling fake news.

    Recode reported on Thursday that Facebook is looking for someone who combines both the news and technology credentials to fill the post, which it says will report to Fidji Simo, the company’s vice-president in charge of news and video.

    The aim is to lead development of Facebook’s news products – like the now largely defunct Instant Articles product – and finding ways to combat the spread of fake news on the platform.

    The Facebook anguish continues. A Medium post investigating declining Facebook reach has set off the most recent alarm bells among publishers. Kurt Gessler, deputy editor for digital news at the Chicago Tribune, posted that since January, the Tribune has seen a significant drop in the reach of its posts on Facebook, despite having grown its fan base.

    The post sparked a sigh of validation across publishers as others chimed in on social media that they’re seeing similar declines.

    America may be losing its taste for Facebooks Trump-bashing and leftism.
    Gee, I guess there's no righties on Facebook. They probably haven't figured out how it works

    Facebook shows you more of whatever you like seeing. When I click on/share cat things I get more cat things. When I click on or share anti-Trump stuff I get more of that. So on and so forth.

    Nah, Facebook just sucks. Personally, I am sick of their biased report system.

    For example, I got temp banned from there for saying nasty things about Lithuanians, in response to a Lithuanian who was saying nasty things about Russians. And he didn't get banned. We were both writing in Russian to each other. Many Russian speakers on FB say the Russian-language portion of the site is moderated by a bunch of nasty Russophobic Ukrainians who ban Russians for any offense but protect their own and others who insult Russians lol

    Who knows, could be true... I have stopped using it for awhile now...

    LGBT+ folks routinely get kicked off Facebook when they say things cishet folks don't want to hear, while anti-LGBT+ sentiment and calls for violence against us go completely unchecked. It happens ~constantly~.
