Posts created by President Donald J. Trump still account for some of the most engaging entries on Facebook, even though the social media network’s internal data shows that recent labels on his posts decrease reshares by about 8 percent, Buzzfeed News reported Monday.

The labels, which are referred to as “informs,” actually do very little to avoid the posts being reshared to propagate potentially false information.

“We have evidence that applying these informs to posts decreases their reshares by ~8 percent,” the data scientists said. “However, given that Trump has so many shares on any given post, the decrease is not going to change shares by orders of magnitude.”
