Meta will no longer prompt political content across apps
Briefly

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has announced that it will no longer promote political content across its social apps. The company aims to reduce the presence of political content in users' feeds and other features such as Reels, Watch, and Groups You Should Join. Artificial intelligence algorithms will play a role in determining which content is informative and meaningful, taking into account personalized signals. Users will have the option to customize their preferences, limit AI recommendations and personalization, or choose to view their feeds chronologically. Meta's approach extends to its Instagram and Threads apps, where the company will no longer proactively recommend politically-charged content.
"People have told us they want to see less political content, so we have spent the last few years refining our approach on Facebook to reduce the amount of political content - including from politicians' accounts - you see in Feed, Reels, Watch, Groups You Should Join, and Pages You May Like," the report read.
According to the announcement, artificial intelligence algorithms will also play their part in considering "personalized signals, like survey responses, that help us understand what is informative, meaningful, or worth your time" on Facebook. The posts also state that the customization of preferences can be made via Facebook 'Feed Preferences' and that the AI recommendations and personalization can be limited. The releases announced, "If you don't want AI systems to personalize your Feed at all, you can use the Feeds tab, which will rank posts chronologically. You can also add people to your Favorites list, so you always see content from your favorite accounts."
