BuzzFeed: Facebook Says Its Fake News Label Helps Reduce The Spread Of A Fake Story By 80%. “A news story that’s been labeled false by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners sees its future impressions on the platform drop by 80%, according to new data contained in an email sent by a Facebook executive and obtained by BuzzFeed News. The message also said it typically takes ‘over three days’ for the label to be applied to a false story, and that Facebook wants to work with its partners to speed the process.”
