Facebook Security Head Warns Of Fake News Dangers. (10/10/2017)

Bloomberg News (10/7, Frier) reported that Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos “warned that the fake news problem is more complicated and dangerous to solve than the public thinks.” In several Twitter posts on Saturday, Stamos “cautioned about hoping for technical solutions that he says could have unintended consequences of ideological bias.” His “comments shed light on why Facebook added 1,000 more people [to] review its advertising, rather than attempting an automated solution,” Bloomberg says.
