CNET: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube face content challenges as Afghanistan falls

CNET: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube face content challenges as Afghanistan falls. “A CNN reporter stands in front of a photo of a helicopter flying over the US embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, a city that has fallen into chaos. Underneath the image, a caption states: ‘Violent but mostly peaceful transfer of power.’ The image, supposedly a screengrab of the network, circulated widely on Facebook, Twitter and other social media, prompting questions about its authenticity. How could the transfer be considered peaceful, some wondered. Was the language meant to be satire? Turns out the image was fake.”
