To ensure the news that internet users get is not fake, Facebook is leading a consortium that is pouring $14 million into the creation of a News Integrity-Initiative. Apart from academics and non-profits, Mozilla and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales are also part of the consortium. The News Integrity Initiative aims to develop tools that will help people be sensitive towards stories they read online.
