Again the whole question around how to combat fake news and fake information generally get's attention from the Wall Street Journal with a title that summarizes yesterdays post.

“Will the new Facebook policy really combat fake news? Or will it merely create a cartel to monopolize it?” they ask.

We have seen how Google addressed this problem in the link building industry. While Google works hard on it's algorithm to drive towards the vision of Alphabet, Facebook might have hit the wall with a problem that any strong visionary may have anticipated.

Their solution doesn't look solid since we know from the fake link industry that unless the user is conditioned, it's effects will be be unmanageable and costly.

The critical point of correction is with user awareness which has a longer term visionary outcome – but one that strikes at the root of the problem.
