Facebook favorirà le fonti utili, autorevoli e locali che verranno valutate direttamente dagli utenti

Nuova importante rivoluzione a Facebook dopo le tante critiche che ha ricevuto il social più usato in Italia. In un post sul suo blog Marc Zuckerberg spiega che il processo di selezione dell’autorevolezza delle fonti di notizie  sarà delegato agli stessi utenti segnalando loro quali considerano i media’ autorevoli di cui si fidano in modo che questi non vengano penalizzati dal nuovo algoritmo. Saranno anche privilegiata le informazioni ritenute utili e locali basandosi anche su quanto conoscano la fonte e se si fidano di quella fonte.

Today I’m sharing our second major update this year: to make sure the news you see, while less overall, is high quality. I’ve asked our product teams to make sure we prioritize news that is trustworthy, informative, and local. And we’re starting next week with trusted sources.

There’s too much sensationalism, misinformation and polarization in the world today. Social media enables people to spread information faster than ever before, and if we don’t specifically tackle these problems, then we end up amplifying them. That’s why it’s important that News Feed promotes high quality news that helps build a sense of common ground.

The hard question we’ve struggled with is how to decide what news sources are broadly trusted in a world with so much division. We could try to make that decision ourselves, but that’s not something we’re comfortable with. We considered asking outside experts, which would take the decision out of our hands but would likely not solve the objectivity problem. Or we could ask you — the community — and have your feedback determine the ranking.

We decided that having the community determine which sources are broadly trusted would be most objective. Here’s how this will work. As part of our ongoing quality surveys, we will now ask people whether they’re familiar with a news source and, if so, whether they trust that source. The idea is that some news organizations are only trusted by their readers or watchers, and others are broadly trusted across society even by those who don’t follow them directly. (We eliminate from the sample those who aren’t familiar with a source, so the output is a ratio of those who trust the source to those who are familiar with it.)
