Spreading fake news remains a problem on Facebook but it is starting to see results in eliminating its proliferation.At the beginning of 2017, Facebook began rolling out its fake news identification tools, starting in Germany.And now, Facebook has given us an update on its efforts.Facebook originally unveiled its fake news-oriented updates in December, following a mounting backlash blaming the spread of misleading and hyper-partisan content on its site for “swaying” the U.S. election.The company’s new tools rely on its algorithms, user reporting, and third-party fact-checking organizations that are signatories of Poynter’s International Fact-Checking Code of Principles.One of the external organizations that aided Facebook was Correctiv (a German investigative journalism non-profit).

Two years ago, my CEO Josh Dorkin and I started a simple podcast to teach people about real estate investing.In total, the show has been downloaded more than 4.8 million times, and it's growing exponentially every month.When we launched our show in January of 2012, our total website traffic climbed 46 percent in just two months (and the website was not small to begin with).Of course, not all of that can be attributed to the podcast (January is always big in the real estate investing space) and you can’t necessarily expect the same results, but the data speaks for itself: Podcasts deliver traffic better than almost anything else I’ve encountered.Build real relationships with your audience"I feel like I really know you, Brandon!"

Art Fund UK has released a new irreverent film featuring a group of eight people attempting to pin down the definitive answer to ‘What is the perfect work of art?’Created by MullenLowe’s new purchase 101, the quirky spot is set in Dulwich Picture Gallery and sees a stuffy curator present a focus group with a series of artistic choices, such as Barbara Hepworth or Hokusai, and Rodin or William Morris.The film picks up pace as the eight begin to gain confidence in their choices, and the ‘perfect’ work of art is finally chosen – off camera.Art Fund UK hopes the ‘ludicrous’ nature of the experiment will demonstrate that there is, in fact, no such thing as the perfect work of art, and that one piece cannot please everyone.The film ends with a promo for the National Art Pass, which can help anyone with an interest discover the works they love.‘What is the perfect work of art?’, which was directed by Fred Rowson at Colonel Blimp, will be rolled out in cinemas.

Beginning in the 1930s, Volkswagen (whose name literally means "people’s car” in German) aimed to empower the everyman to own and drive a car.This idea was radically nonconformist in an age when companies only produced luxury cars for the elite.Related: 3 Ways Brands Are Marketing Nostalgia in the Age of Throwback ThursdayBecause Volkswagen has held on to those values for decades, it has built a passionate following.(People still love features like odd heater handles on the floor, the clatter and rattle of the air-cooled engine and the aesthetic in these cars that virtually everyone could afford to buy.)Although models have changed throughout the years, VW has remained focused on "progress" and "defying convention" and these values have served the company well.

With its latest sneaker launch, Nike is once again tapping into its pioneering design pipeline and appealing to the human aspects of athleticism -- a branding strategy that has helped make it the most beloved sportswear brand on the planet.When the company’s first employee, Jeff Johnson, had a stroke and lost functionality on the right side of his body in 2004, CEO Mark Parker initially began brainstorming about a laceless shoe for easier entry and exit.After the idea was set into motion, Nike received a letter on social media in 2012 from Matthew Walzer -- a then-16-year-old Florida high school student with cerebral palsy.“Cerebral palsy stiffens the muscles in the body,” Walzer wrote.“As a result I have flexibility in only one of my hands, which makes it impossible for me to tie my shoes.”Related: Nike's Instagram Videos Have Helped Boost Following by Over 200 Percent

Two bold designers working on opposite ends of the planet are actively designing farms, gardens and forests designed to live on massive residential buildings.The massive amount of vegetation helps reduce Singapore’s moderate pollution and carbon dioxide, cleaning up the air.Internally, a complex irrigation system directs “used” water back onto the forested terraces to sustain the vegetation and reduce waste.“Vertical Forest is a model for a sustainable residential building, a project for metropolitan reforestation contributing to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the implication of expanding the city upon the territory,” Boeri noted on his website.Vertical Forest increases biodiversity, so it becomes both a magnet for and a symbol of the spontaneous re-colonization of the city by vegetation and by animal life.”The concept earned his firm second place in the 2014 Emporis Skyscraper Award, beating out more than 120 competitors including The Leadenhall Building in the United Kingdom, the KKR Tower in Malaysia, and the Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid Tower in Abu Dhabi.
