I'll believe it when it happens. It took Twitter nearly a year between saying they'd do it and actually doing it, and even then it's woefully underused on Trump's tweets.

Were I in charge, I would go further by marking in depth journalism as "Boring" and giving memes and shiatposts priority in the feed.

If you do not stop allowing posts by racist, abusers, conman, and liars, you will only have a site with racists, abusers, conman and liars

For all the people who disagree with this:

Imagine how much more reasonable Trump would seem if you didn't have a continuous feed into his mind by way of twitter. You'd be left only with his prepared speeches every once in a whil

A politician might be spewing hate or spread incorrect information, but it is very nice to know that (s)he does that for the next election.

/Remember that "more reasonable" is not the same as "reasonable"

Facebook trying to regulate news is like trying to write the UN Approved History of the World.  It is a hopeless cause.  The history taught in each region is dramatically different, and rarely based on rigorous fact.  It's also being sabotaged on purpose by malicious (and probably well paid), teams.

I saw something my direct family was involved in - flagged as a false story.  There's a paper trail for it.  I've seen the official records supporting it, and living family members remember it.  But revealing those details would make us a target, so it's not worth fighting.

This is part of what makes learning history so difficult.  You can only trust the writing or painting for clues, and sometimes details. I took every single ancient history course the University offered, and took ancient Rome 3 times because the teacher covered a different section every semester he taught, but they only offered one course.  But it gave me a healthy caution of 'history.'

I can only imagine that same history written from the perspective of the barbarian hoards.  Maybe the Franks or the Hun, or Saxons or something. (mild snark)
