  • RT published this video item, entitled “A ‘NICER’ news feed?… | Facebook’s algorithm changes make certain media pages less visible” – below is their description.

    In what it calls an attempt to eradicate misinformation regarding the US election, Facebook has made ‘a temporary emergency change’ to its algorithm. But one knock-on effect appears to be giving a preference to content that is pro-Joe Biden. Some Facebook workers were referring to the algorithm as ‘the nicer news feed.’ RT examines what ‘nicer’ really stands for in this context.
