Study Shows Fake Election Stories Were Shared More On Facebook Than REAL News Coverage During The 2016 Race…

no title

Looks like Mark Zuckerberg dropped the ball on this one…

BuzzFeed News recently conducted a study that revealed completely FALSE news stories actually performed better on Facebook — through shares, reactions and comments — than those from legitimate sources during the 2016 presidential race.

According to the site's analysis, 20 of the top-performing fictional articles from hoax outlets and super skewed blogs racked up a combined total of over 8.7 million shares, comments, and reactions in the last three months before the election.

Meanwhile, 20 of the top-performing stories from 19 major news websites — including New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, and NBC News — only earned about 7.3 million shares, reactions, and comments.

That's kind of messed up, to be honest.

In fact, Darmouth College political science professor Brendan Nyhan agrees, telling BuzzFeed:

"I'm troubled that Facebook is doing so little to combat fake news. Even if they did not swing the election, the evidence is clear that bogus stories have incredible reach on the network. Facebook should be fighting misinformation, not amplifying it."

What's also upsetting about this, is that 17 of the 20 best-performing fake stories were either pro-Donald Trump or anti-Hillary Clinton.

While we know we can't assume Hill lost the election because Facebook was allowing fake news stories to go viral, it is fair to point out that some people can be heavily influenced by stories shared on social media, whether they're real or not.

Facebook Thinks Everyone Died In The Wake Of Donald Trump's Win — Are YOU Affected By This Eerie Glitch?

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebookMark ZuckerbergScary!Viral: News

As post-election political rantings are taking over social media, Facebook is apparently trying to do population control.

A glitch on the social media site triggered memorial alerts at the top of many users' pages on Friday — including that of CEO Mark Zuckerberg!

The notices began to appear at around 3:45 p.m. EST and came complete with some heavy wording, for instance:

"Remembering Mark Zuckerberg. We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life. Learn more about memorialized accounts and the legacy contact setting on Facebook."

Yikes!

The company hasn't explained just what caused the glitch — but after the apocalyptic week we just had, it seems like a social media rapture couldn't come at a better time.

Mark Zuckerberg Defends Donald Trump Supporters — What Do YOU Think??

no title

Mark Zuckerberg isn't about to unfriend someone just because they have different views.

This week, billionaire investor Peter Thiel came under fire for his $1.25 million pledge to Donald Trump's campaign — well after several women accused the Republican nominee of sexual assault.

After news of the PayPal co-founder's large donation came out, many questioned whether Facebook should reevaluate Thiel's status as a board member — but according to the big man in charge, the Trump supporter isn't going anywhere.

On Tuesday, Zuckerberg commented on the controversy in an internal memo to Facebook employees, in which he chalked up the board member's support of the candidate as part of the company's "diversity."

In a leaked screenshot of the CEO's post, which the social media giant confirmed to CBS News was authentic, he wrote:

"We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault."

Maybe not, but it sure seems that way by this point, doesn't it?

Z-berg gave a few reasons why a billionaire like Thiel would support the GOP nominee, like being one of the few people who would benefit from his proposed tax plan. He added:

Daddy may no longer be allowed home after this…

Mark Wahlberg is one of the most bankable movie stars in all of Hollywood nowadays, but it's important to remember the A-List actor actually got his start in music.

Thankfully, Marky Mark hasn't forgotten his roots — in fact, he's still rapping to this very day!

The Wahlburgers star stopped by The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday to promote his upcoming action flick Deepwater Horizon… but ended up only embarrassing the hell out of his 13-year-old daughter Ella Wahlberg.

Clearly entering her rebellious teenage years, Ella assumed she pulled a fast one on her dad by putting him on the spot with a random rap request. It's just too bad he took the opportunity to embarrass her right back with a freestyle all about spanking!

After seeing Ella's intense glares and eye rolls… we have a feeling he's gonna be in some hot deep water for pulling this prank.
