The world's leading social network said it will also downplay news stories that lack bylines that can be checked or from publishers that don't clearly share information about their staff.

Facebook on Tuesday said it will give priority to original news reporting as part of an effort to divert attention from spam, clickbait, and specious articles.

The world's leading social network said it will also downplay news stories that lack bylines that can be checked or from publishers that don't clearly share information about their staff.
