The Facebook Newsroom has reported today that a feature has been added to it to enable user flag a news fake or hoax. Now onwards, if you see something on Facebook that’s probably a false story or obvious hoax news, you can choose to report posts as a “false news story.”

If many people flag a news /story, it will appear less in the newsfeed. It will also show a warning that a number of users have reported the news as fake.
