Facebook adds censorship options and Xbox One gets VR streaming
This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now.
According to the New York Times, Facebook has quietly developed software that automatically suppresses posts from users' feeds in specific regions, which might be the key to the company reentering the Chinese market.
China is the world's largest Internet audience, with about 700 million users online.
That's more than twice the entire U.S. population.
China's government has censorship rules in place.
And sites like Facebook and Twitter have been blocked internally.
Starting next month, Oculus Rift owners who also have an Xbox One will be able to stream their games through the VR game set.
Of course the games won't be in VR but you'll be able to enjoy your own private game session on a virtual screen.
The free app hits on December 12th.
And finally the Wall Street Journal reports that a media study involving 7,800 students ranging from middle school to college Show that the vast majority could not tell the difference between a sponsored post and an actual news article on the same site.
The study, which will be published next week, reinforces the notion that the spread of misinformation is a problem the internet does not seem to have an answer for just yet.
