"Trump Opens White House To Homeless" - GOOG & FB Harden Fake News Ad Policies

Weeks after the race for the White House is over, the Internet is still abuzz about how "fake news" sites may have influenced the US election.

Zuckerberg himself was found quickly back-pedaling post election after accusations fake news in Facebook newsfeeds was responsible for a Trump victory. You know its kinda serious when the POTUS starts complaining - President Obama openly criticized the spread of fake news on Facebook during a news conference in Berlin recently. 

With public discourse on the matter showing little sign of slowing, both Google and Facebook have made a quick reactionary move to harden their ad policies.

 “The goal of search is to provide the most relevant and useful results for our users. In this case, we clearly didn’t get it right, but we are continually working to improve our algorithms,” Andrea Faville, a Google spokeswoman, said in a statement.

The new mechanism on Facebook is to be based both on automated and human reviews that would decide what news is fake. 

Google will limit the ability of Fake News sites to participate in Google Adsense, which will be a major blow to the distribution and online revenue of the fake news business model.

Here's a closer look at some of the top Fake News Sites, and some of their ludicrous (and often HILLARious) claims made over the 18 month lead up to Nov 8.
