Dear Jeff, I fully support your proposals except the idea that social networks should hire editors. This is exactly against the concept of digital networking space and acts like this killed other earlier attempts like Livejournal and Myspace — when they “hired editors” who turned to be censors and producers of the bias.

Taken separately, the fake news problem is more technical, or techno-reputational, and the solution is greatly connected with a universal, good, respected DigitalID that links the source with the reputation, like eBay or blockchain.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
