Facebook’s Safety Check feature was the latest victim of fake news
Fake news strikes again.
Despite Zuck claiming fake news is less than 1% of what's on Facebook (seriously Mark?) it's own Safety Check feature was fooled by fake news.
Safety Check is completely triggered by the community, using an algorithm that identifies trending posts. A link to a 2015 article on the Bangkok Informer disguised as a BBC News article spread and triggered the alert.
But no… there's no fake news problems on Facebook. ;O)
