Facebook CEO gives update on 'fake news' efforts, says several projects underway

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated in a social media post Saturday: "A lot of you have asked what we're doing about misinformation, so I wanted to give an update... Historically, we have relied on our community to help us understand what is fake and what is not. Anyone on Facebook can report any link as false, and we use signals from those reports along with a number of others -- like people sharing links to myth-busting sites such as Snopes -- to understand which stories we can confidently classify as misinformation... The problems here are complex, both technically and philosophically. We believe in giving people a voice, which means erring on the side of letting people share what they want whenever possible. We need to be careful not to discourage sharing of opinions or to mistakenly restrict accurate content... We have much more work ahead on our roadmap. Normally we wouldn't share specifics about our work in progress, but given the importance of these issues and the amount of interest in this topic, I want to outline some of the projects we already have underway: Stronger detection. The most important thing we can do is improve our ability to classify misinformation. This means better technical systems to detect what people will flag as false before they do it themselves. Easy reporting. Making it much easier for people to report stories as fake will help us catch more misinformation faster. Third party verification. There are many respected fact checking organizations and, while we have reached out to some, we plan to learn from many more. Warnings. We are exploring labeling stories that have been flagged as false by third parties or our community, and showing warnings when people read or share them. Related articles quality. We are raising the bar for stories that appear in related articles under links in News Feed. Disrupting fake news economics. A lot of misinformation is driven by financially motivated spam. We're looking into disrupting the economics with ads policies like the one we announced earlier this week, and better ad farm detection." Reference Link

Loop Capital sees U.S.-centric internet names outperforming in near-term
Following the election of Donald Trump as President and the Republican sweep in D.C., large cap internet names, those with more international revenues, and China-based companies have been underperforming, noted Loop Capital analyst Blake Harper. Larger caps, such as Alphabet (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN) and Facebook (FB), could continue to see more pressure given the potential for more restrictive trade and antitrust policies, while internet companies the large majority of their revenues from the U.S. and a narrower market focus - such as Angie's List (ANGI), Care.com (CRCM), GrubHub (GRUB), Quotient (QUOT), Bankrate (RATE), LendingTree (TREE), TrueCar (TRUE) and Yelp (YELP) - should outperform in the near-term, contends Harper.

Facebook updates on metrics don't alter value proposition, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted that Facebook has identified a number of metrics that were being calculated incorrectly by the company. While significant, Facebook does not currently bill its clients based on any of these metrics, noted Sebastian, who doesn't think the news alters Facebook's core value proposition for users or advertisers. Also, Facebook's plans for a "Measurement Council" should improve client engagement and communication, contends the analyst, who keeps an Outperform rating on the shares and recommends investors continue to add to Facebook positions on weakness.

Piper sees Trump-related Internet selloff as 'rare opportunity'
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says he would be "buying the fear" priced into Internet mega-caps. Concerns of President-Elect Trump's impact on tech companies are being largely extrapolated from sound bites that are unlikely to manifest during Trump's presidency, Munster tells investors in a research note. The selloff in "best-in-class" large cap internet stocks Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) presents a "rare opportunity," Munster writes. He believes Trump's threats towards Amazon are without merit and that net neutrality is unlikely to be reversed. He finds the valuations for each of the mega-caps "very attractive."

Internet stock weakness creates buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
EBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney says that the 5%-10% decline in Internet stocks since the election has created more attractive long-term opportunities. The analyst does not expect the Trump Administration's policies to have a major impact on the fundamentals of the Internet sector. His favorite large-cap names in the sector are, in order, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB), and Priceline (PCLN). His favorite small-cap names are, in order, Yelp (YELP), Criteo (CRTO), and GoDaddy (GDDY).
