Facebook and Fake News

The latest Zuckerberg dilemma:

"We take misinformation seriously," writes Zuckerberg. "We've been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We've made significant progress, but there is more work to be done."
"We believe in giving people a voice, which means erring on the side of letting people share what they want whenever possible," he adds. "We need to be careful not to discourage sharing of opinions or mistakenly restricting accurate content."

I don't envy his situation, but really, at some point, you just have to draw the line. My personal stand is, once they do roll out their rules, they better have proper enforcement and very, very clear guidelines.
