Facebook is asking users to identify ‘misleading’ stories

Mark Zuckerberg may insist that Facebook doesn't have a serious fake news problem, but his company is apparently taking steps to identify misleading stories. 

Some Facebook users tweeted Monday that they received surveys from the site asking them to identify whether certain headlines are misleading. 

Chris Krewson, the editor of Philadelphia news outlet Billy Penn, noticed the query under a Philadelphia Inquirer article. It asked him to identify to what extent the link's title uses "misleading language," with options ranging from "not at all" to "completely."
