Mark Zuckerberg: Identifying The "Truth" Is Complicated

Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook this weekend to say that the social network will do its best to get rid of fake news but, at the same time, he also said that identifying the truth is "complicated."

Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further. This is an area where I believe we must proceed very carefully though. Identifying the "truth" is complicated.
