Facebook has quietly rolled out its long-awaited solution to fake news

Facebook has quietly rolled out its long-awaited solution to fake news

TwitterFacebook

Since people first started complaining about “fake news” on Facebook, the phrase has evolved—from a useful way to identify false-information-masquerading-as-traditional-news, to a term that means basically nothing, now wielded by President Donald Trump against stories he doesn’t like, and also, drunk people in bars screaming about things and/or sports results they disagree with. 

But the original problem still genuinely exists. And Facebook finally came out with its long-awaited response to beginning to cut away at the issue. 

Spotted on Twitter on Friday night, the tool identifies links to sites known to produce misinformation. The tool cites third-party fact-checking organizations like Snopes and Politifact—the kind of sites that Trump supporters also like to dispute.  Read more…

The reviews are in and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is exactly what you’d expect, apparently


TwitterFacebook

It feels like we’ve been waiting years for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, and maybe we have. With the movie’s theatrical release on the horizon, critics have been to early screenings and tested that tale as old as time.

The film’s reviews are neither negative nor positive — it’s not a bad movie by objective standards, but falls short of the animated original’s innovation because, well, it’s not original. 

In a review that calls the film a “lifeless recreation,” Vulture‘s Emily Yoshida claims what many other reviewers echo: that the visual effects add style, but no substance. Read more…

Lorde is back with a euphoric breakup song, ‘Green Light’


TwitterFacebook

Lorde as a woman scorned is furious, yes, but thriving. 

After an appropriate dose of mystery, Lorde dropped her new single, “Green Light,” Thursday, the first off her album, Melodrama. 

“She things you love the beach, but you’re a damn liar,” she sneers. In the video, she dances around town shaking her legendary head of hair under lights of varying colors. 

“I realized this is that drunk girl at the party dancing around crying about her ex-boyfriend who everyone thinks is a mess,” Lorde told Zane Lowe when she premiered the song on his Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music. “That’s her tonight and tomorrow she starts to rebuild. And that’s the song for me.” Read more…

What to expect from Instagram’s glitzy portrait studio at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party


TwitterFacebook

The stars will get their glamour shots before taking (and hopefully posting) some less refined, champagne-drunk Oscar selfies this year.

Photographer Mark Seliger will once again step behind the lens at the famed Vanity Fair Oscar Party, teaming up with Instagram for the fourth year in a row. This time, the set will be inspired by Hollywood in the 1920s, so brush up on the Charleston, Emma Stone. 

“Thomas Thurnauer and I have designed a set for this year’s Vanity Fair Oscar Party Instagram Studio with a touch of Golden Age Art Deco glamour,” Seliger told Mashable in a statement. “We’re looking forward to a wonderful, star-studded night!” Read more…

Rich people deserve more nice things, so here’s a bowling alley just for them


TwitterFacebook

Do you have an obscene amount of money? Are you also inexplicably obsessed with bowling?

Then boy are you in luck, because a bowling alley in Melbourne, Australia has popped up that will set you back at least A$10,000 ($7,691) for a mere three hours-worth of play. Of course, you’re also in luck generally, because you’ve got A$10,000 to blow on absolutely nothing.

The so-called “Pins Royale” experience has been unveiled as part of the new Kingpin Complex in Melbourne’s Crown plaza. 

It looks like a lot of fun — if standing in a shiny-looking room while eating disgustingly rich food and playing a game designed largely for children and drunk people is your thing. Read more…
