Facebook Blames Vomiting Sticker Search Result on “Bug”
Facebook is getting some heat over what it calls a “bug” in its sticker search. “Facebook is apologizing for what it says is a ‘bug’ that caused people to see the vomit sticker when looking for something to represent ‘liberals’ or ‘feminism’ on its platform. The company attributed the blame to something in its search algorithm and acknowledged that it was fixing the problem.” That same search algorithm Facebook will resolutely not share any information on, but probably not the same algorithm that determines what posts from friends and pages you get to see. Feel better now? No? Me neither.
