Facebook to start ranking news outlets on community trust

Facebook announced on Friday that it will start ranking news outlets based on how widely they’re trusted by the platform's users.

Publishers with higher ratings will get priority in users’ news feeds, a move that the company says will cut down on “sensationalism, misinformation and polarization” in the media.

“We decided that having the community determine which sources are broadly trusted would be most objective,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post.
