Photo: file SAN FRANCISCO: Facebook announced Friday it will ask its two billion users to rank their trust in news sources, in its latest attempt to combat the spread of misinformation on the social network. The change comes as the online giant seeks to address charges that it has failed -- along with Google and Twitter -- to prevent the spread of bogus news, most strikingly ahead of the 2016 US presidential election. In a Facebook post, co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said the network would seek to "prioritize news that is trustworthy, informative, and local." "There´s too much sensationalism, misinformation and polarization in the world today," Zuckerberg said. "Social media enables people to spread information faster than ever before, and if we don´t specifically tackle these problems, then we end up amplifying them." The new "trusted sources" ranking, which starts next week, would aim to "make sure the news you see is high quality" and "helps build a sense of common ground" rather than sow division, Zuckerberg said. To do so, he said, Facebook decided to rely on member surveys as the most "objective" way to rank trust in news sources. "We could try to make that decision ourselves, but that´s not something we´re comfortable with," Zuckerberg said. "We considered asking outside experts, which would take the decision out of our hands but would likely not solve the objectivity problem." The new ranking system, he said, would hopefully separate news organisations that are only trusted by their readers or watchers, from ones that are broadly trusted across society. "This update will not change the amount of news you see on Facebook," he said. "It will only shift the balance of news you see towards sources that are determined to be trusted by the community." Friends get priority The latest move comes a week after Facebook announced a major update to its user feed that highlights what friends and family share on the network, over advertisements, celebrity and media posts. The company cast the change as part of a refocus on "community" -- prioritizing social interactions and relationships -- while acknowledging it would likely result in people spending less time on the platform. "For some time, we have argued that Facebook should give priority to news from trusted sources," David Chavern, head of industry group News Media Alliance, said in a statement. "This would be positive for consumers, as well as help to address ´fake news´ issues." The group will watch how the Facebook ranking changes are implemented and whether they deliver on the social network´s stated goals, according to Chavern. "My hope is that this update about trusted news and last week´s update about meaningful interactions will help make time on Facebook time well spent," Zuckerberg said. Known for annual personal goals ranging from killing his own food to learning Chinese, Zuckerberg´s stated mission for this year is to "fix" the social network. He plans to target abuse and hate, and interference by nation states. Brexit vote Meanwhile, British lawmakers probing possible Russian interference in the Brexit referendum revealed this week that Facebook agreed to broaden its own investigation into fake news around the vote after the social media platform´s initial efforts drew criticism. The House of Commons' Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Committee said Simon Milner, the tech titan´s head of policy in Britain, had vowed the company would now search for "clusters engaged in coordinated activity around the Brexit referendum" that appeared to have originated in Russia. Milner said it may take several weeks to produce results. The commitment follows demands from MPs for Facebook and Twitter to provide further information on alleged Russian social media meddling in the run-up to the June 2016 referendum. Executives from the platforms, as well as from Google, are due to give evidence to the parliamentary inquiry in February, when MPs will visit America for the occasion.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsArguably one of the best batsmen in the world and his country's most iconic cricketer, Virat Kohli, over the years, has become a vital cog in Team India's batting line-up. Equipped with a wide array of shots, the right-handed batsmen is capable of tearing into the world's best bowling attack on his best day. But, after a series of consistent performances, the Delhi lad witnessed a rare dip in form which was evident in his team Royal Challengers Bangalore's early ouster from this year's Indian Premier League (IPL). With the demons of the IPL lurking in the shadows, Kohli faced an uphill battle to prove his mettle in the ICC Champions Trophy - a tournament where his predecessor had recorded a famous title win back in 2013. © Reuters Silencing his detractors with sublime performances, the Indian captain has enjoyed a prolific run in the tournament so far. The 28-year-old began his innings with a gritty 81 against Pakistan to script a famous win for his side. Though his dismissal for a golden duck against Sri Lanka in the very next time did raise a few eyebrows, Kohli quashed all the doubts with another influential 76-run knock against the South Africans. It's safe to say that the Indian skipper has finally regained his mojo with the willow and whatever doubt the critics had over his struggling form has also diminished. While Kohli's return to form has undoubtedly been an added bonus for the in-form Team India, his performances in the ongoing tournament has also improved his rank in the 50-over format. © Reuters Riding on some ferocious knocks, Kohli has now regained the top spot in the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings. The Indian batting sensation, who had entered the Champions Trophy 22 points behind number-one ranked AB de Villiers and 19 points behind David Warner, has managed to leapfrog the two famous batsmen. © Reuters While Kohli's ascension is surely a good sign, Indian fans will also cherish the fact that Shikhar Dhawan has made a comeback into the top 10, jumping five places to be placed 10th in the list of ODI batsmen. The Indian opener has scored 271 runs in the Champions Trophy so far and is currently the leading run-scorer in the tournament. © Reuters In the bowling department, Indian seamers, too, have benefitted from their recent performances to ascend in the list of ODI bowlers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has vaulted 13 places to share the 23rd spot with Afghanistan's Hamza Hotak. His bowling partner Umesh Yadav has also gained two places to occupy the 41st rank, while Jasprit Bumrah has jumped three places to be 43rd in the list. © Reuters The only sign of worry, for India, seems to be their proven spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin who have slumped down in the list of ODI bowlers. On one hand, where Ashwin has dropped two places to land at the 20th spot, his spin partner Jadeja, too, descended by three places and is now ranked 29th in the list.
