Facebook has finally admitted that they play a role in the spread of fake news, and they've uneiled a plan to do something about it.

The social network will:
  • Make it easier for users to report fake news stories
  • Work with third-party organizations like Politifact and Snopes to alert readers when a story might be fake
  • Crack down on sites that pretend to be legitimate news sites
Will it work? Probably not entirely. But anything would be helpful at this point.
