“Our research shows that there is a tiny group of people on Facebook who routinely share vast amount of public posts per day,effectively spamming people’s feeds,’ said Adam Mosseri,Vice president of Facebook’s News Feed,in a blog post.
Facebook,which has 2 billion monthly active users. Out of this, around 0.1% people share low quality content such as clickbait,sensationalism and misinformation. As a result we want to reduce the influence of theses spammers and deprioritize the links they share more frequently than regular shares.”-Mosseri added.
