Spread almost exclusively garbage.
Facebook has come up with a new method to reduce the amount of junk and fake news in the news feed, and it's to go for the superposts.
There is a clear relationship between those who post a lot and those who spread junk mail and fake news, Facebook believes.
Going for the superposts
Now they will begin to limit the visibility of the posts from these superposts, or those who post more than 50 times a day.
Facebook will not even look at the content of the posts they post, as the relationship between these users and the spread of junk links is so strong.
- These links are unproportionally problematic. They are often either "click-bait" or sensationalism or false news, "says Adam Mosseri, Facebook's Vice President responsible for news flow, to Recode.
He also does not hide the fact that these users almost exclusively share rubbish on Facebook:
"It's one of the strongest signals we've ever found to identify a wide range of problematic content," he says.
Not applicable to publishers
The new change in Facebook's priorities will make posts from superposts less visible in news feeds, but it does not apply to content publishers, according to Mosseri.
Facebook only looks at individuals who post more than 50 times a day, and not on pages that record so much.
