The topic at hand was not algorithms in general or the newsfeed, it was trending topics. They are two different products, two different algorithms, one has human intervention (Trending Topics), one does not. There is ALWAYS bias — concience or unconscience.

That does not mean it is perfect, that does not mean it can’t be tweaked, etc…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
