Yet Another Reason to not Have Facebook: People seem to be Influenced by the False News on there

For reasons like this I am so glad I don't have Facebook at all.
So: 44% of all adults look to Facebook for news; 20% of them say social media posts are capable of changing their views on a political issue; and more of the stories posted on Facebook this cycle, real and fake, came from right-wing outlets.
Taken together, it all suggests Facebook had a much larger role in the election than Mark Zuckerberg would like to admit.
I think Facebook is the swamp that needs to be drained.
