How Credible Is the News in Your Facebook and Twitter Feed?
How The Factual’s Extension Has Changed My Social Feed Behavior
The news stories in my social media feed scored poorly on average. Whatever news I was reading in my social feed clearly was not a good use of my time.
My social media feed is lacking in news content. This is particularly surprising on Twitter, which I tend to think of where I get breaking news. What I discovered is that most of the tweets in my feed are commentary without any articles to back up the assertions made (i.e., almost entirely opinion).
