Facebook continues to try and stop the spread of fake news

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Facebook has been widely criticized for its role in the spread of misinformation.

Even after rolling out new features for users to report hoaxes, some say the platform has not done enough. Facebook announced that Alex Hardiman, a former VP of Product from the New York Times, will be Facebook’s first ever Head of News Product. Watch above for more.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
