FB to boost ‘trustworthy’ news

Facebook has announced it will prioritise news sources deemed to be more trustworthy on its News Feed.

The firm said the social network community would determine which outlets are reliable via the use of user surveys.

Founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said news content would soon make up around 4% of what appeared in people's News Feeds - down from 5% before.

The move is the latest attempt by the company to quell the spread of so-called fake news and propaganda on the network.
