A great article from Buzzfeed about the internal frustration Facebook is facing with the 2016 election.
I believe that Facebook did probably influence the election a bit but I don’t think you can blame Facebook for everything. Fake news is a big problem but how can Facebook put good filters without being blamed as censorship?
It is really a hard problem that is why Mark Zuckerberg is not taking quick action. Some people suggested that people should flag fake news. But that is not foolproof either, you could have trolls just tag everything as fake news.
So there is no real easy solution. The best way to resolve this issue is for us to become more aware and discerning. We really need to be more educated and pray for wisdom.
Also, don’t jump to conclusions too fast. Just hold judgment.
I pray for more wisdom and discernment.
