We have seen so many such rumors around the internet , especially from Facebook.
Now the facebook authorities understands the dark side of such false spread rumors.They are palling to introduce more ways to reduce the number of such false rumors.
Facebook is to send more potential hoax articles to third-party fact checkers and show their findings below the original post, the world’s largest online social network said on Thursday as it tries to fight so-called fake news.
The company said in a statement on its website it will start using updated machine learning to detect possible hoaxes and send them to fact checkers, potentially showing fact-checking results under the original article.
Facebook has been criticised as being one of the main distribution points for so-called fake news, which many think influenced the 2016 US presidential election.
