Facebook announces its own journalism project to stave off fake news
Wednesday, 11 January 2017 Facebook has announced that it's launching its own journalism project, continuing its efforts to change the way media organisations work with the social network. The move could be seen as an extension of its vow earlier this year to crack down on fake news on the site.
Today's tech stories that matter include Facebook's new Journalism Project designed to combat fake news, Samsung's Note 7 woes nearing an end and JetBlue's launch of a high-speed Wi-Fi service across its entire fleet.
