- The adjusted algorithm of Facebook makes fake goods trending. The Washington Post last month checked three weeks every hour what stories were labeled as a trending topic, and saw between five times to clear fake news.
In August, Facebook fired several editors and let it determine an algorithm which articles to be trending. A few days later, an erroneous message still featured on the dismissal of television presenter Megyn Kelly. The algorithm was then adjusted, but so is still not working properly.
In addition to the five items that were undeniably fake, according to the newspaper, there are two messages were found that were 'quite inaccurate'. The social media referred several times to shops.
Facebook did not respond to the findings Wednesday.
