Facebook Tinkers With Users’ Emotions in News Feed Experiment, Stirring Outcry
To Facebook, we are all lab rats. Facebook routinely adjusts its users’ news feeds — testing out the number of ads they see or the size of photos that appear — often without their knowledge. It is all for the purpose, the company says, of creating a more alluring and useful product.
Last month, Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch pledged to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Facebook would “up our game” to counter the “threat of foreign interference in elections.” Committee members grilled Stretch, along with representatives from Twitter and Google, about how platforms were used for “Russian meddling” and shared a sample of the ads it classified as “Russian-linked.”
Panicked about your feed getting hijacked by ‘Russian trolls’? Facebook’s got you covered, with a new tool that will allow users to check if the Kremlin messed with their minds during last year’s US presidential election.

Do you think that they are stopping US from interfering with other countries elections? Thing if Zuck runs for president, can you imagine the censorship facebook would do
Is Russia undermining our Democracy, or is Facebook?
