Facebook launched its Journalism Project on Wednesday as the world's biggest social media network looks to deepen its relationship with news organizations.
Facebook will work with newsrooms and support a campaign to teach users how to distinguish between hoaxes and real stories.
“We know that our community values sharing and discussing ideas and news, and as a part of our service, we care a great deal about making sure that a healthy news ecosystem and journalism can thrive,” a spokesperson said as cited by the Financial Times.
The company will also provide training and tools that support journalists, and promises to be a listener in the media space.
In addition, Facebook wants to show more ads to its users who watch videos and start making money for the people who supply it with those videos.
According to reports, the social network is going to start testing a new "mid-roll" ad format, which will give video publishers the chance to insert ads into their clips after people have watched them for at least 20 seconds.
