Facebook's news feed to promote local media sources

Facebook Inc. will focus more of its social media platform’s news feed on reports from local sources, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a post on Monday. The announcement comes as part of the company’s bid to address issues such as fake news, as well as to promote "meaningful interactions." The changes will roll out in the United States first and spread to other countries during the year.

"People consistently tell us they want to see more local news on Facebook. Local news helps us understand the issues that matter in our communities and affect our lives. Research suggests that reading local news is directly correlated with civic engagement. People who know what's happening around them are more likely to get involved and help make a difference," Zuckerberg said.
