Zuckerberg against fake news "something will change"

In the speech that opened the annual Facebook conference for developers, Mark Zuckerberg launched a clear message. Which in recent weeks has also been reiterated by a commercial, which debuted during the much followed NBA championship playoffs, in which the social media makes the mea culpa. The commercial begins by highlighting the ability of Facebook to connect people and friends. A capacity ruined by spam, clickbait, fake news and abuse in the use of data, against which we must fight. "That?s going to change" says the voiceover. Something is about to change.

Mark Zuckerberg against the fake news in the F8 opening keynote

Mark Zuckerberg against fake news openly sided on stage in front of 5,000 software developers, media and cameras from around the world. I believe that giving people a voice is important, as is building relationships, creating a sense of community, he said in San Jose in California. Last year at F8 2017 Zuckerberg talked about how technology can help build stronger communities by citing videos, cameras and livestreaming services. This year, on the other hand, the arguments touched are certainly linked to the crisis that hit the social network in its 14th year of activity, after the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the other accusations of not doing enough to counter the Russian trolls, not to oppose the fake news and having contributed to directing the vote in the 2016 US elections. During the keynote, Facebook announced that it will no longer work with third-party data providers such as Acxiom and Experian and will control all the apps that require access to user information. Once these more delicate issues were addressed, Facebook announced important innovations in the field of virtual reality, the Messenger and Instagram apps.
