Last Monday, Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg said that the platform will be delivering more local news to US users in its efforts against misinformation.

Zuckerberg said that local news help build the community online and offline, and the company wishes to ensure that the time users spend on the platform is valuable. He adds that a lot of people had told him during his travel across the nation that they would prefer to see more concrete local issues, rather than heated and divisive national ones.

Facebook says that it may roll out the same update in other countries later this year.
