Zuckerberg Admits That FBI Pressure Played A Role In Facebook Censoring The Hunter Laptop Story

Earlier in the interview Zuckface also said that they complete discount “the angry reaction emoji” on posts, which would otherwise count towards showing more interaction with a post and bumping up in peoples feeds. So, say that the Hunter Laptop story wasn’t censored to begin with, one would think the natural reaction would be the angry emoji, so not counting those reactions suppresses that story. Still, the implications go further than that. Consider why they added the anger reaction Emoji to begin with if they were going to discount it? One can speculate they added it as suppression mechanism for the stories facebook users should be outraged and engaged in.
