    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg delivers the keynote address at Facebook's F8 Developer Conference on April 18, 2017, at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

    To solve its "fake news" problem, Facebook is asking its users to complete surveys on what they determine is "high quality" news content, CNBC reported Friday.

    CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on a post on his Facebook page Friday that the company will ask users if they are familiar with a specific news source — and whether they trust it — in order to help weed out less reliable sources.

    As a result of the changes, people can expect the level of news in the news feed to drop from 5 percent to 4 percent, Zuckerberg said.
