A year ago, the number of news stories published on Facebook was tiny: less than 100.
In January 2018, the total had ballooned to over 6 million, or more than a fifth of the site’s daily readership.
Now, that number has surpassed 30 million.
And as Facebook’s efforts to curb fake news continue, it has become clear that fake news has a huge impact on our daily lives.
How Facebook can make real news more like real life The news is getting worse.
Facebook, which had 1.2 billion daily active users as of January 2018 , has had a particularly tough year in terms of tracking the spread of fake content on the social network.
In June 2018, researchers from Columbia University’s Center for Media and Democracy published a report analyzing more than 30,000 articles on Facebook from May 2018 through June 2018.
Their findings showed that the average Facebook user was posting more than 1,000 fake news stories per day in 2018.
And that number jumped to more than 10,000 daily fake news posts in November 2018.
Facebook has since rolled out new measures to block fake stories, but the data suggests that a lot more work is needed.
And the problem is only going to get worse.
As Facebook has made it harder for fake news to spread, other news sites have struggled to keep up.
A study published by Oxford University this week found that only two news sites had significantly lower false-positive rates than Facebook in 2018: The Washington Post and BuzzFeed.
The Post was one of the first news organizations to get a real-time alert when stories appeared that were “troubling.”
And it was one that was among the first to report on the spread in October.
That was followed by BuzzFeed.
But BuzzFeed’s news stories were also among the worst.
According to the Oxford study, BuzzFeed’s fake-news stories were more likely to contain “lack of context” and “tremendous amounts of sensationalism.”
Those two articles were among the top 10 stories shared by Facebook users in the United States in 2018, according to the researchers’ analysis.
BuzzFeed was also among Facebook’s top five most shared articles in the U.K., which accounts for nearly a quarter of its daily userbase.
In fact, BuzzFeed is the top news story on Facebook, with more than 200 million views, in the European Union.
In its latest annual report, Facebook said the number-one story it’s seeing on the site is “Trump’s pardon of Arpaio,” a story that has been shared more than 9 million times.
In that story, the Trump administration pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a staunch conservative who has repeatedly been accused of racial profiling and racist comments.
In the past year, a number of other prominent Trump critics and journalists have been charged with felonies.
And this week, a former Trump campaign adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.
Facebook isn’t just trying to combat fake news on its site.
The company has also worked to improve the way news organizations use social media to reach audiences.
In 2018, Facebook announced a new tool that would allow news organizations and their advertisers to directly connect with their audiences, without having to rely on third-party websites.
Facebook also created a “social news feed” that would let publishers and advertisers see the stories of other news outlets and organizations.
In addition, Facebook has revamped its News Feed algorithm.
Instead of using a single algorithm to show stories from around the world, Facebook’s algorithm now shows stories from a variety of sources.
That means publishers can now target their audiences more directly, and publishers can be more targeted for news.
The News Feed also allows publishers to show the top stories and the top shares.
The new news feed will go live on the platform in September 2018, and it will be rolled out across a number to all publishers.
The platform’s news team has been working to improve Facebook’s tools for creating and reporting stories.
And, as a result, it seems that the company has improved the way that news stories are shared.
But for some news publishers, the new News Feed is just a small step toward the kind of massive social overhaul that’s been promised by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
“It’s just not enough,” said Matt Yglesias, a technology and policy analyst at the Center for Democracy and Technology.
“The social network needs to get more into the business of actually being a real news publisher.”
How Facebook’s new News Platform Will Help News Publishers More than a year after Facebook began making its News Platform available to publishers, a few of the biggest news outlets are already using it.
In May 2018, BuzzFeed published a story about a “secret” project called the “Social Media Research Group,” which has been described as the “largest research team on Facebook.”
The report said that Facebook’s social news platform, which is called News Feed, would help it “learn how to best understand and build real-life connections with readers.”
