Reply To: MASS collaboration is the solution.
Social media Facebook, Instagram and Twitter etc have algorithms that rank and prioritize posts, often highlighting click-bait and hype slanted posts. They are useful platforms for sharing info and can handle virtual communities but they struggle to focus the discussions of their groups because the facilitation options available to the admins are severely restricted.
Discussions seldom reach consensus and many find this lack of conclusion frustrating and basically a waste of time.
This factor exasperates efforts to limit fake news.
