That fight continues today as the social network is rolling out an update that’ll lower the odds of low-quality links surfacing in the News Feed.
In preparing for the update, Facebook said it reviewed hundreds of thousands of links to identify sites that fall into the sketchy category.
Facebook has taken a number of steps in recent months to better protect its platform – and by proxy, its users – against misinformation.
Speaking of, the social networking giant already has a policy in place that prevents advertisers with low-quality websites from advertising on their platform.
If they do, Facebook says they may show up lower in a person’s feed and might not be eligible to serve as an advertisement.

Facebook make a lot to hide spammy posts from News Feed
Such pages may also include “disruptive, shocking or malicious ads,” according to a statement issued by Facebook earlier today.
Facebook has announced plans to reduce the number of “low-quality web page experiences” from users’ News Feeds.
To do so, Facebook said that it reviewed “hundreds of thousands” of web pages linked from Facebook, and highlighted the ones that provided little useful content or terrible ads.
Tapping the wonders of artificial intelligence (AI), the company will automate the process of identifying future posts that contain similar characteristics, and thus they will show up further down a person’s feed.
Though Facebook already had a policy in place to dissuade advertisers from serving crappy ads, the company is now upping its effort to prevent such posts from appearing in users’ feeds at all.
