Facebook must police Today In, its local news digest launching in 400 cities

Facebook has a new area of ​​its application that will have to monitor for false news and biased sensationalism. Facebook is launching "Today In", its local news aggregator that began testing in January, in 400 small and medium-sized cities in the US. UU Now he is also testing it in his first place abroad in Australia. IOS and Android users can open the Today In dialer or choose to receive summaries of their local news in their feed. The feature includes previews that link to news sites about top headlines, current discussions, school announcements and more.

"We have a series of misinformation filters to ensure that fake news and clickbait do not appear in Today In. We also offer people the ability to report suspicious content on Facebook and Today In specifically," he says. a spokesperson for Facebook. "The filters of erroneous information are the same ones in Facebook of those that we have spoken previously: to reduce the clickbait, the qualifications of the verifiers of facts of third parties", they said. However, "the content of the surface is extracted by an algorithm", so there is always the possibility that the problematic content will be resolved. For now, there will be no announcements in Today In.

Facebook is also testing local alerts with 100 local governments and first aid pages that can be issued to inform citizens about urgent problems or emergencies, such as where to take shelter from a hurricane . Local alerts are sent through News, Today and Pages can also be directed to users with notifications about them. Once again, while Facebook may be examining which Pages gain access to the Local Alerts feature, you must monitor closely to make sure they are using it to provide vital information to their communities instead of simply capturing traffic at sensitive times.

Facebook hopes to fill a gap after surveys found that 50 percent of users wanted more local news through Facebook. Previously tested Today In with New Orleans, La .; Little Rock, Arkansas; Billings, Mont .; Peoria, Ill.; Olympia, Washington; and Binghamton, N.Y. The feature could give local points of sale an increase in referral traffic that could help offset the fact that Facebook has drained journalistic advertising money in its own news announcements. And to make sure that the "news deserts" without enough local outlets still have solid sections of Today, Facebook will collect the headlines from the surrounding areas.

But the release also opens a new vector for policy issues, and it's funny that Facebook pushes it forward in this given all its policy issues in recent times. You'll have to make sure that Today In only adds content from reliable, fact-centric local media and does not end up selling fake news. But that, in turn, could be open to criticism, suggesting that it is predisposed against marginal political media who believe that their clickbait is the true story.

map. The list includes Facebook's hometown, Menlo Park and nearby Oakland, but not San Francisco. It is also skipping big cities like New York and Washington, DC in favor of places like Mobile, Alabama; and Provo, Utah.

To find the function only for mobile devices on Facebook (there is no desktop version), users will press the hamburger button "More" than three lines and scroll down looking for "Today at [their city]". Otherwise, they may stumble upon one of their compendiums that show the headlines, thumbnails and publications of three of the most important local news.

After touching or opening the marker Today, you can scroll horizontally. different sections like In The News that presents recent stories and can be alternated to show sports. As usual, Facebook is not above the promotion of its own content, such as the user and the news publications on the page that deal with local issues, the groups to which they could join or the events to which they could confirm their attendance . Once you get to the end of a daily edition, you'll see a "You're already up to date" ad, similar to the Instagram feature designed to keep you from getting wasted.

Facebook infamous rejected the news in favor of content from friends in early 2018, which precipitated a significant decline in the scope of the news service and the referral traffic for links to articles. That caused that many establishments felt burned, since many had been endowed with personnel thanks to the flow of traffic and the dollars of publicity that generated. Now, some have to fire journalists, especially those who make video content that Facebook also marked.

As local news resurfaces, Facebook could help strengthen ties in local communities as part of its new mission to "bring the world closer." "But if that news contains a strong partisan bias or exaggerations from nothing, it could lead to further polarization." Facebook already has trouble finding enough third-party data checkers to check viral news, now it can be exposed to even greater responsibility. to be the arbiter of the truth now that you are fragmenting the news space into hundreds of different compendia.

This enigma will be repeated again and again Facebook wants to continue promoting product launches that it believes can help society, but in turn assumes an even greater responsibility to protect us that has not shown that it deserves.

Facebook se volvió infame de las noticias en favor del contenido de amigos al comienzo de 2018, lo que precipitó una disminución significativa en el alcance del servicio de noticias y el tráfico de referencias para los enlaces a los artículos. Eso causó que muchos establecimientos se sintieran quemados, ya que muchos se habían dotado de personal gracias al flujo de tráfico y los dólares de publicidad que generaba. Now some are having to lay off journalists, especially those making video content that Facebook also dialed down.

By resurfacing local news, Facebook could help strengthen ties in local communities as part of its new mission statement to “bring the world closer together”. But if that news contains heavy partisan bias or hypes up nothingburgers, it could lead to more polarization. Facebook already has trouble finding enough third-party fact checkers to verify viral news stories. Now it may expose itself to even more liability to be the arbiter of truth now that it’s fragmented the news space into hundreds of distinct digests.

This conundrum will play out again and again. Facebook wants to keep pushing forward with product launches it thinks can help society, but it in turn takes on even greater responsibility to protect us that it hasn’t proven it deserves.
