I was reading an interesting article on Slate earlier today, about how Facebook is no longer sending visitors to them. Apparently Facebook has started to prioritize sites that its own users think are trusted. Hah, what could go wrong with that feedback loop? As you might expect, it turns out mostly to be Fox News that Facebook users consider a trusted site for their news. Yikes. Under this updated news feed algorithm, a left-leaning news chat site like Slate must be purged.
