Facebook today said it will reduce the number of fake stories published to users' news feed. Facebook said it is primarily targeting stories that are hoaxes or scams. Moving forward, Facebook will reduce the distribution of stories that are flagged by users as fake, stories that receive lots of comments warning others of scams or false content, and stories that are deleted by large volumes of people.
