Instagram changes its algorithm after censoring pro-Palestinian content

Instagram changes its algorithm after censoring pro-Palestinian content

Instagram and Facebook were censored for deleting posts concerning the living conditions of Palestinians on the streets of Jerusalem. Initially, the censorship issue was related to the vulnerability, including a “security feature” that prevented users from posting stories on the displacement of Palestine and other global issues on Instagram.

However, Facebook and Instagram employees stated that this is not a bug or a feature, “their platforms have democratized information.” A group of employees received many complaints about content that was automatically reviewed on Instagram, such as reports about the demolition of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

They said that they did not believe that the censorship was deliberate, but rather moderated on an anti-marginal scale. After a continuous investigation of users and employees, Instagram decided to make the necessary changes to its algorithm. The platform usually displays the original content in their stories before reposting the content, but according to The Verge, from now on, the weight of the two will be the same.

This change is not just a response to concerns about pro-Palestinian content. The user’s attention to most people leads people to believe that this is overwhelming for certain attitudes or concerns. A Facebook spokesperson said: “We have to be very clear that this is not the case. This applies to all posts reposted in the “story”, no matter what it is.
