Other Developments

The Mark Zuckerberg-led company has revealed to The Associated Press that it will be closing down its Facebook trending news section since its inception four years ago. The company thinks that it is outdated. They also feel that it is unpopular.

The Facebook trending news section was also error-prone with issues related to fake news and other instances. Limitations in AI was also a drawback.

The company is now experimenting with new features like breaking news label. Publishers can add it to stories to stand out against the chatter. The board also thinks that local news should be more available.

In an interview ahead of the announcement, Facebook’s head of news products, Alex Hardiman, said the company is still committed to breaking and real-time news. But instead of having Facebook’s moderators, human or otherwise, make editorial decisions, there’s been a subtle shift to let news organizations do so.
