This will reduce the size of posts featuring fake news on Newsfeed. By ensuring all the authenticity and transparency among advertisers and publishers in the site, the fake news won't cover itself much on a giant social media platform. According to the spokesperson of the Facebook, "We reduce the visual prominence of feed stories that are fact-checked false," Facebook has become a platform for various news outlets. In order to combat fake news feed, the platform has come up with distinct measures for displaying the original news along. Thus, a user won't be able to get through the fake information. This initiative is taken to unfold fake accounts as well. However, this social platform has launched its new feature earlier also.
