Facebook’s News Feed spam filter has a huge vulnerability that blocked the URLs of legitimate news sites, including Media, Buzzfeed and USA Today, so it cannot be shared as posts or comments, according tomedia reports. It is unclear exactly what caused the problem.
For now, Facebook has been trying to clear up misinformation about the outbreak of new coronapneumonia, but now it looks like the company may have gone too far or some technical error.
Sources have reported this to themedia techcrunch and provide a number of examples of blocked links. In response, a Facebook spokesman told the company: “We are investigating the matter and sharing the information as soon as possible.” (I) can now confirm that we are investigating the matter, but I’m not sure what will happen. “
Facebook’s Guy Rosen later posted on Twitter: “We’re doing this – it’s an error that’s in the anti-spam system, and it’s not about any adjustments our content moderators team makes.” We are fixing and restoring all of these posts. More news will be coming soon. “
