We are seeing a lot of interaction on WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram daily. People get irritated sometimes reading news that is actually a hoax or false. Some of the hoaxes are misleading just because the company wants to get a higher distribution feed or post reach in order to increase the value of their brand. In an effort to control and eventually stop the false news appearing in your News Feed, Facebook is rolling out a new dependable feature that would allow any user to flag scams or false stories as hoaxes even though the company is working on removing such updates and posts.

Facebook Hoaxes Example

In order to report a story as false, any user would have to select the relevant option from a list that appears when you choose to hide the story with the help of the arrow button on the top-right corner of the post. If too many people flag a post as false or delete it, the post will get reduced distribution in News Feed. This integrated  update will not affect the content that is clearly labeled as satire. Facebook is trying to make the browsing and user experience better because the social network is growing year by year.
