(Telecompaper) Leading social media companies have agreed to a new code of conduct to fight fake news on their platforms, after the EU threatened regulation if they did not improve their practices. Google, Facebook and Twitter are among the first to commit to the code, and other online service providers and advertisers are expected to join. European Digital Society Commissioner Mariya Gabriel said she would meet with the companies in the coming weeks to discuss the changes, and the EU will evaluate progress with the code by the end of the year before considering further action.
