No wonder FB can't filter fake news

Saw a post on Windsurfing Classifieds for a board and sail and Facebook, helpfully, suggested other "similar" items.

Yep, used sneakers and a desk. You do you, Facebook. Dash 1

Re: No wonder FB can't filter fake news

Youtube and other social media forums can't even tell if the viewers are real:

"The Flourishing Business of Fake YouTube Views

Plays can be bought for pennies and delivered in bulk, inflating videos’ popularity and making the social media giant vulnerable to manipulation."

Webguy, this does seems like a perfect chance for you to use your tech savy to make a killing by hooking up fake news with fake views. A marriage made in heaven.

There is no off season.
