Facebook Intelligence Or Deception

 

Today I would like to tell you some thing that I noticed a while back in our favorite hangout spot , Facebook ! In today’s world there is nothing that can be called plain and simple.Every thing from Google Search results to Facebook’s friends feeds , are controlled by Algorithms that basically, in simple words control how you see the information.

In Facebook what happens is that it detects and stores your Clicks. Clicks could be any thing ranging from clicking on the like button on some friend’s video or status or comment.Similarly it creates trends of users , for example usually you see that the advertisements shown on your home page are different then that of your friend’s home page. This was harmless and sometimes helped the user to find something of interest in those ads.

Now the scary part. Currently in Facebook what is happening is that those friends with whom u get out of touch on Facebook as in don’t tag them or post any thing on their wall or perform any kind of activity , are automatically removed from the news feeds on your home page.That is you wont see any updates from that friend and you would think that the friend is not using his/her’s Facebook. When in actuality Facebook decided for you whom to see in your feeds and whom not to see.

So I am forced to ask that is Facebook becoming intelligent or is it deceiving us?

Now this for you all to decide!

Peace !!!
