Zuckerberg wrote Facebook is working on stronger detection to classify misinformation, easier reporting for users to catch misinformation faster, third-party fact checking, flagging more stories, disrupting the fake news economy, and improving the related articles quality.
"The bottom line is: we take misinformation seriously," Facebook's chief explained. "Our goal is to connect people with the stories they find most meaningful, and we know people want accurate information. 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."
Facebook will continue to work with journalists and others in the news industry to get input on solving the issue. Critics have pointed to Facebook being an echo chamber for conservative-focused fake news.
Facebook took steps to curb these websites, however fake news still runs rampant. Zuckerberg's post on Sunday gained a large global readership, with over 120,000 likes and 8,000 comments.
