Facebook has been getting dragged hard since November 8th -- and rightfully so -- given the unprecedented amount of shitposts and fake news that dominated the social site in the months leading up to the election. After his initial defense of "nuh-uh, wasn't us" fell on deaf ears, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has decided to do something about it. The company has begun hitting fake news sites in the wallet, as well as scrubbing BS content through both curation and automation. And, on Sunday, Facebook appears to have quietly rolled out a third method: a new user-reporting feature that specifically calls out fake news for what it is.
Update: Turns out that the false news option has been active on the site since last year.
