How Facebook Throttles Traffic Through Fact-Checking

Genesius Times satire site had a hit with the article “Greta‚Äôs global warming conference cancelled due to sub-arctic freezing temps” but admins noticed something strange whenever traffic would spike for the page. It would skyrocket and then fall precipitously soon thereafter. Most posts shoot up in traffic indicating a post in a group or a page and then gradually decrease in traffic over time. The quick declines were suspect.

Admins noticed one of the referrals, however: https://hoax-alert.leadstories.com/

This is one of the obnoxious fact-checking services for Facebook:

So it’s clear people are sharing the article but it’s quickly repressed. Either this is an automatic algorithmic degradation or it’s a real person turning on a suppress button after every popular post is unclear. It’s hard to believe they have actual humans working on this but nothing’s too much to protect against the horrors of hilarious satire.

Banned From Facebook: Changing Ryan’s Privates

One of our admins has been blocked from Facebook for violating the community standards. This comes after threats to all of our admins with no clear reason:

Notice there is no “post below”.

The blocked admin did receive more clarification involving his post of the Changing Ryan’s Privates meme, which it has been confirmed, was removed from our page:

Not sure what this violated. It’s possible the violations stemmed from the hashtag used: #gaystopo. The irony is that censoring this type of post validates that hashtag.

Is Europe Censoring Breitbart?

When users in Austria go to conservative journalism organization Breitbart.com, they’re presented with a 403 error and an ominous national-security URL. Now it appears that people in Germany and Russia are getting the same error.
