  1. Blog

    A blog is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries typically displayed in reverse chronological order. Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently "multi-author blogs" have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, interest groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users. A majority are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs, but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers. There are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments, such as Daring Fireball.

  5. Adam Mosseri:

    The issue of fake news on Facebook has been a hot topic for months, particularly during the recent U.S. presidential election. In one hoax article, for example, Pope Francis was falsely reported to have endorsed Donald Trump. FACEBOOK's' FAKE NEWS' HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR SOCIAL MEDIA REVAMP, EXPERTS SAY Facebook’s Trending Topics section also fell prey to some high-profile fake stories after the social network implemented an algorithmic feed this summer. These included a false article that Fox News had fired anchor Megyn Kelly and a hoax article about the Sept. 11 attacks. On another occasion a seemingly innocent hashtag that appeared in Trending Topics linked to an inappropriate video. The social network announced Thursday that it will make it easier for users to report fake news when they see it, which they can do by clicking the upper right hand corner of a post. If enough people report a story as fake, Facebook will pass it to third-party fact-checking organizations that are part of the nonprofit Poynter Institute's International Fact-Checking Network. Five fact-checking and news organizations are working with the company on this : The Associated Press, The Associated Press, FactCheck.org, Politifact and Snopes. Facebook says this group is likely to expand. FACEBOOK BLOCKS CAR INSURER FROM PROFILING USERS In his blog post, Adam Mosseri explained that if the fact-checking organizations identify a story as a fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to a corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed, he added. While users will still be able to share these stories, they will receive a warning that the story has been disputed. Additionally, once a story is flagged, it can not be made into an ad and promoted, according to Facebook. The Menlo Park, California-based firm will also be looking for signs that a story has misled people in some way, such as instances where people are significantly less likely to share a story after reading it. FACEBOOK EMPLOYEES FUME AFTER PUSH TO CENSOR TRUMP POSTS REBUFFED Facebook, which gave a preview of its anti-fake news strategy last month, is also looking to disrupt financial incentives for spammers. On the buying side we’ve eliminated the ability to spoof domains, which will reduce the prevalence of sites that pretend to be real publications.
