    Fake news is how the tabloids make their money, so why would Facebook ever remove a source of income? Also, I've been seeing that commercial where Zuckerberg promises to do better and protect our personal info. So why would they now say they won't remove fake news?

    I think he's just interested in the optics - he wants to appear to be doing the right thing but without actually doing the thing that matters :rolleyes:

    Facebook officially loses $123 billion in value

    My heart bleeds for them :lol:

    However...

    It's disappointing, but not unexpected, that this is all about money and not about their behaviour :wall:
