How Facebook plans to combat fake news

For Facebook, Jen Weedon, William Nuland and Alex Stamos write that the Company has “had to expand our security focus from traditional abusive behavior, such as account hacking, malware, spam and financial scams, to include more subtle and insidious forms of misuse, including attempts to manipulate civic discourse and deceive people. These are complicated issues and our responses will constantly evolve, but we wanted to be transparent about our approach.” That  approach is detailed by Facebook in Information Operations and Facebook (Apr. 27, 2017, version 1.0). — Joe
