Facebook's new German initiative targets 'unambiguously wrong reports'



Social media giant Facebook announced on Sunday that it will introduce new measures to combat fake news in Germany, as Europe's largest economy and most populous nation enters an election year.
"It's important to us that the reports and news posted on Facebook are reliable," a blog post on the Silicon Valley firm's German website read. German politicians have warned that populist parties and foreign nations could use fake news to try and influence parliamentary elections slated for September or October.
