BERLIN - EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker calls social media a consistent approach to combating the spread of fake news on the Internet. Organisations such as Facebook and Google have interest in this field to develop 'a certain ambition,' Juncker told newspapers Funke Mediengruppe. Credibility is indeed 'their most important asset.'
Juncker reminded the social media to the duty imposed upon themselves to introduce standards designed to prevent manipulation. 'We will be very careful how it is implemented,' he said.
