Your Facebook News Feed is about to change, yet again, and it’s because the social media giant wants you to be better informed.
Facebook announced Wednesday that it is rolling out a new update over coming months to ensure users stop seeing posts and ads on their News Feed linking out to “low-quality web experiences.” A low-quality website is subjective, but Facebook has set a clear definition for this purpose: it’s “misleading, sensational and spammy” pages “containing little substantive content” or are littered with ads. “This way people can see fewer misleading posts and more informative posts,” writes Facebook.
The company says it reviewed hundreds of thousands of web pages that are linked from the platform to evaluate which content has little substance or has an abundance of “disruptive, shocking or malicious” ads. Then, they used artificial intelligence to spot similar pages on the platform.
