When Facebook launched "trending" in 2014 as a list of headlines appearing at the side of the main news feed, it aimed to steal users from Twitter by offering them a quick look at the most popular news stories.
Facebook's head of news products, Alex Hardiman, wrote in the announcement that the company is now testing a breaking news label that would put the power of editorial decisions in the hands of news organizations.
Facebook also is testing a "breaking news" label with 80 publishers across North America, South America, Europe, India and Australia along with breaking-news notifications.
Pasquale said Facebook's new efforts represent "very slow steps" toward an acknowledgement that the company is making editorial judgments when it decides what news should be shown to users - and that it needs to empower journalists and editors to do so. Facebook faced accusations of political bias in the surfacing of news stories. The changes and features Facebook is putting out, he said, are being treated as "bug fixes" - addressing single problems the way engineers do.
Facebook has occasionally gotten in trouble because of Trending, which could get confused and surface objectionable content and Fake News.
