Facebook: We do not discriminate

Sharon Gaudin | May 16, 2016
Zuckerberg invites conservatives to discuss allegations that the social network suppresses some points of view.

Osofsky also said topics are not blacklisted.

"The guidelines do not permit the suppression of political perspectives," he wrote. "About 40% of the topics in the queue get rejected by the reviewers because they reflect what is considered "noise" -- a random word or name that lots of people are using in lots of different ways. For example, braised, DVD, #weekend and #sale are all topics that were not accepted as trends over the past week."

Osofsky added that Facebook is continuing to investigate the allegations.
