Facebook publishes fake news ads in UK papers
Facebook has broadened its campaign to raise awareness about fake news, by publishing adverts in the UK press. Facebook is under fresh political pressure to tackle fake news in the run up to the UK general election. Last month Conservative MP Damian Collins asked Facebook to tackle fake news in the run up to the UK general election on 8 June. "The danger is, if for many people the main source of news is Facebook and if the news they get on Facebook is mostly fake news, they could be voting based on lies," he told the Guardian. "People want to see accurate information on Facebook and so do we," said Simon Milner, Facebook's UK director of policy.
