Facebook to Train Employees to Identify Political Bias

“We think a lot about diversity at Facebook,” Sandberg said. “And we have a managing-bias class that all of our leaders and a lot of our employees have taken that I was part of helping to create, and we’ve focused on racial bias, age bias, gender bias, national bias, and we’re going to add in a scenario now on political bias.”

  • Undoubtedly they’ll use the Obama Method of addressing bias.

    Amazing that so many people still use and expect everyone else to use Facebook. I stopped using it, six years ago – saw it for what it was, forever pc crap.

      Finally got dragged in because people were using it for scheduling things. Maybe it’s just me being a late adopter, but it’s unnecessarily bloated and obtuse in its organization.

      It really needs a competitor, just a simple platform for people to remain in contact with relatives and friends (real ones) and whatever organizations they belong to. Could probably be operated quite cheaply if all you employ is technicians, and not a gaggle of censors and propagandists and sociology experimenters.

        I used to use an app like that
        It was quick, cheap and reliable and uncensored

        It was called “pre union post office”

    zuckerbergs eagerness to help despots suppress free speech is reminiscent of his ancestors ratting out hiding jews to the national socialist police force

    Dump Facebook.
    It makes you a target.
    Facebook makes you less-safe.

    Let’s just cut to the chase of the matter. Using or misusing the word bias is a cover-up, since it really is a battle between those who value freedom versus those who want to control everyone else. The latter are the want-to-be dictators, fascists and totalitarians.

    Who doesn’t like red fascism masquerading as protecting freedom?

    The mainstream media are dying, so bias will be entirely eliminated when their function in society is assumed by the Ministry of Truth. There can be no bias when there is only one viewpoint.

    “We’ve investigated every employee and discovered seven employees who have been found to be adversely politically biased and seem to be exhibiting extreme libertarian and conservative beliefs. These seven employees will be appropriately counselled, re-educated in our employee camps, and encouraged to self-denounce, and then they might finally be allowed to rejoin the Progressive community that Facebook is proud to embody. Meanwhile the struggle continues, where we are proud to call each other ‘comrade citizen’ in our demonstration of solidarity with true Progressive values”

    Facebook is nothing but a SJW hate speech platform.

        Meh…just another self important lefty who thinks way too much of his own opinion. Thinks they are the be all, end all of everything, yet excels at nothing in life, and expects everything to be given to him, not because he earned it, but because, well, just because he feels entitled to it. Entitled to others hard work.
