Overshared, Sketchy Links to Be Demoted


Facebook is now after spammers, those who publish multiple posts a day, often sharing sketchy links to clickbaity-type sites. While Facebook won’t suspend an account for sharing 50+ false or clickbaity news articles in a day, it will begin demoting these posts so that this type of content becomes buried in a user’s News Feed. Facebook defines these spammy links as ones that “tend to include low quality content such as clickbait, sensationalism, and misinformation.” As for Pages, only those who rely on these spammers for traffic will see a drop in visibility and engagement.
