Daily Dot: Facebook unveils new ‘context’ tool to help users spot fake news . “Facebook announced on Thursday it will begin rolling out a new tool to help its users spot fake news in the wake of revelations that the social media platform was exploited by Russia in an attempt to influence last year’s presidential election. The new tool will allow Facebook users to click a button on articles to learn ‘context’ about the publisher–which the company hopes will help readers determine whether the news is from a credible outlet.”
