Facebook to Start Monitoring Fake News

Facebook is looking to hire “news credibility specialists” to presumably sift through news stories to determine what is real and what is fake. The company posted two job listings on June 7, one for an English speaker and another for a Spanish speaker. Although the roles are now called “News Publisher Specialist”, the hyperlink to the posts calls them a “News Credibility Specialist.” Facebook appears to have made edits to the posts after media outlets picked up on them, The Verge reported. The job postings used to say that the company was looking to hire people with “a passion for journalism, who believe in Facebook’s mission of making the world more connected.” The applicants were told that they would be tasked with “developing a deep expertise in Facebook’s News Credibility Program,” and that they would be “conducting investigations against predefined policies.” Facebook previously fired its editorial team and has tried to remain neutral when it comes to filtering news, especially because it was accused of having political biases. Since then, it has partnered with third-party fact-checkers to catch and flag fake news.
