Facebook will continue this trend in a worldwide attempt at reducing fake news.

Items to watch for according to Facebook are the date of the post, the website’s URL and checking that it isn’t posted as a joke.

Facebook have already removed tens of thousands of fake accounts and insist they have systems in place that can monitor repeat postings, featuring the same content, a ploy often used by spammers.

Think before you share things folks. Not everything you read on Facebook is true.
