Facebook says it will reduce fake news
Facebook said it will update its social media platforms in Germany within weeks to reduce the dissemination of fake news.
German Justice Minister Heiko Mass has repeatedly called on Facebook to respect laws against defamation in Germany that are stricter than those in the United States.
The Germans are worried that fake news and “hate speech” on the internet could influence a parliamentary election in September in which chancellor Angela Merkel will seek a fourth term in office.
