From CNBC here:
Fake stories generated more engagement on Facebook than real, mainstream news among top election-related articles, according to data analyzed by BuzzFeed News.
In the last three months of the presidential campaigns, top-performing false headlines from hoax sites and hyperpartisan blogs generated more than 8.7 million shares, reactions and comments, BuzzFeed News estimated. That’s compared to nearly 7.4 million shares, reactions and Facebook comments on the 20 best-performing news stories from mainstream websites, according to BuzzFeed’s Craig Silverman.
Well it sure sounds like Zuckerberg has earned his vast fortune partially by trafficking in fake news.
And that makes a lot of sense because Zuckerberg is on a fake mission with his advertising company/spying machine.
I’m loving every bit of pushback he’s getting on his crappy website.
