Facebook is to step up its efforts to fight fake news by sending more suspected hoax stories to fact-checkers and publishing their findings online.It follows mounting criticism of the social media firm for not doing enough to root out fake news on its platform.It has also just launched a new feature in four countries that will publish alternative news links beneath problematic articles.But several experts said the measures did not do go far enough.”Presenting audiences with context is helpful,” said Tom Felle, a senior lecturer in digital journalism at City University.”But it does nothing to stop the spread of this material, or to stop traffic going to fake news peddlers who are making money out of creating this material.”
