MENLO PARK, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Social Media giant Facebook has begun tagging ‘fake’ news on its network, warning netizens about stories whose accuracy has been disputed by 3rd parties.
The move aims to discourage readers from sharing ‘fake’ news.
But realizing that some stories are more satirical than fake, Facebook has also created a separate tag that advises netizens that the stories they are about to share have been confirmed by 3rd parties to be “creative.”
We, at The Adobo Chronicles, fully support this Facebook move. The creative one, that is.
