Many, many Facebook users still don’t know that their news feeds are filtered by an algorithm

Last year I did the “stop liking things on Facebook” challenge/experiment. Instead of clicking “like” I commented on posts I liked or were of interest to me.

The resulting feed was more of what I wanted to see and of what the algorithm chose for me.

But, as a creature of habit, I went back to clicking and my feed changed back to what the algorithm decided I should see. Sigh.
