TACKLING FAKE NEWS

I have just read this article in the Guardian that was published earlier today and thought I would share it with you. Credit to the Guardian for the content.

A group of technologists, media experts, analysts and academics are working on a number of solutions to tackle the epidemic of Social Media Fake News. 

They are looking into the idea of hiring human editors, as well are creating algorithms and looking into crowd sourcing.

This is a great article and I recommend it as a great read.

STEEMIT is at the forefront of BLOCKCHAIN SOCIAL MEDIA and the future of both Mainstream Media and Social Media is being mapped out on this site right in front of your eyes. 

Recently I have posted a few Blogs expressing my concern about FAKE NEWS and I am working on a presentation I hope to get out later that lays out my vision of the future of Live Mainstream Media News Feeds.

The presentation and concept will blow you mind.


Thanks for reading.

Very good post @stephenkendal. I read the guardian link, and i believe the "verified news checker" will be a community that holds interest in the content to be checked. This will have the community reaching consensus on what is factual or not. Interesting read. Thank you for sharing.

"This will have the community reaching consensus on what is factual or not." ...NAILED IT. Thanks for the comment. Stephen

Wow, this is a stunning case of hypocrisy; Facebook were putting out fake stories attached to Trump because they supported Clinton.

Former Facebook employees have admitted to censoring articles by not letting them appear on feeds, or even blatantly changing the content. So for them to go on about fake news is laughable, but laughable in the way it makes you want to throw up.

The Guardian is a prime source of FAKE NEWS - maybe not quite up there with CNN or snopes, but 99% bollocks...
