RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - On Wednesday, February 10th, Facebook announced that it will lessen the amount of political content posted to 'a low percentage of people' in a test in Brazil, Canada and Indonesia starting this week.
"During these initial tests we’ll explore a variety of ways to rank political content in people's feeds using different signals, and then decide on the approaches we’ll use going forward," the social network said in a statement.
Brazil is among the countries where people most report viewing much political content on Facebook and this is one of the reasons why . . .
