Facebook dehnt Faktenprüfung aus

Facebook adding part-time fact-checking contractors – Facebook is creating a new pilot program in the U.S. that will leverage part-time contracted ‚community reviewers‘ to expedite its fact-checking process. … The community reviewers will help to corroborate or debunk stories that Facebook’s machine learning tools flag as potential misinformation. … Facebook will hire the ‚community reviewers‘ through a third-party contractor called Appen, which sources, vets, selects and qualifies community reviewers. – Appen will provide Facebook with a large, diverse and distributed pool of reviewers that reflects the diversity of age, gender, ethnicity and geography of Facebook users in the U.S. … The reviewers are meant to be representative of everyday Facebook users, so they don’t have any sort of particular expertise in fact-checking.“

But somewhere along the way, the flaws of technology became abundantly clear. What happened? – The people who brought us this decade explain: Mark Zuckerberg, Edward Snowden, Ellen Pao, Phil Schiller, Kevin Systrom, Brianna Wu, Tyler ‚Ninja‘ Blevins, Mike Judge, Jonah Peretti, Diane von Furstenberg, Alex From Target – and many more. (People’s titles in the interviews below, which have been edited for clarity, reflect the roles they had at the time.)“
