Facebook’s news tab is a great idea IF users can curate her/his sources.

The new News tab idea…

If you have an hour, this video/conversation is definitely worth it. Matthias Döpfner, Axel Springer’s CEO, was blunt and asked the right questions, from a journalist, online and print publisher, EU guy.

… if the user can define her/his trust criteria.

My fav part is well explained in this Recode article and in particular, the News tab idea is great but, to me and unsurprisingly, only if the FB user can do its own curation of publishers meeting his/her trust values.

“And as Zuckerberg notes in his comments, he isn’t sure whether Facebook should be curating a mix of news for users or letting them pick most of what they want to see.

Trust is personal. No-one can tell you what you trust.

As we wrote:

While distrust is general, trust definition is personal.

This is the foundation of TrustedOut.
