Facebook Doesn’t Want You To Know These 5 Hacks To Destroy Fake News
Facebook started out as a place for an awkward young man to connect his campus classmates to each other so he could judge them. If there was any altruism in the creation of Facebook, it was lost sometime between when Zuckerberg was sued by his co-founder and being the chosen platform for Russia-linked advertising during the election.
These ads, often disguised as actual fake news articles — in the sense that the information was made up and does not corroborate with reality, unlike what our sponge-brain-in-chief calls fake, news he disagrees with — are often written with click-bait headlines and enticing themes for the target group. Facebook has even recently bought ads on Google to talk about Russia's targeted ads on Facebook. The internet has gone mad.
