There Are Limits to How Much Facebook Can Do for Us

Joshua Geltzer wrote for CNN on what social media platforms like Facebook can do to thwart the display of violent videos and the spread of fake news:

But not all concerns about content on social media are created equal. For some, such as the posting of graphic violence, "fix this" may simply demand greater attention and investment of resources by tech companies. For others, such as the spreading of fake news, we -- as a society -- need to figure out what, exactly, we mean by "fix this" before we can expect the companies to rise fully to the challenge.
