Is Facebook’s Algorithm Inciting Hate?
I paid Facebook to promote my content. They claimed they would “Customize your audience to reach more people who may be interested in your business.” These are comments I received from that audience: “Phreak show with mental issues!!” “Perversion… God protect these children. “Repent.” “By all means, warp the minds of more children.” On the heels of the Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen’s testimony to congress, I can’t help but wonder if I’m seeing what she was testifying to congress about in real-time.
