Facebook Search VP Totally Denies News Bias in “Trending” Story Selection
 
The social media giant's VP of Search, Tom Stocky, posted this evening to more fully respond to a Gizmodo story charging that Facebook news curators routinely keep right-leaning political stories out of the news Trending Topics box. Here are the important bits:

  • "There are rigorous guidelines in place for the review team to ensure consistency and neutrality. These guidelines do not permit the suppression of political perspectives."
  • "Popular topics are first surfaced by an algorithm, then audited by review team members to confirm that the topics are in fact trending news."
