This link from the Washington Post shows quite a few instances where Fake News has caused either fatalities or injuries, as well as highlighting some of the limitations social media companies face with their different platforms.  ALL of these use cases would be helped if the social media companies would evaluate links BEFORE they are shared, and show that evaluation when someone is reading the post so they know whether it’s trustworthy or not.  For example, if they implemented Trustium in their systems, many of these killings may not have happened!
