Confirmed: Conservative Publishers Hit Hard By Facebook Algorithm Changes

Confirmed: Conservative Publishers Hit Hard By Facebook Algorithm Changes, by Jim Hoft.

Tech Giants Google and Facebook are currently purging conservative content from Facebook and YouTube. They are hiding conservative stories on Google. They are shadow-banning conservative news on all social media.

In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform. …

Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic. Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.

The Gateway Pundit hit hard:

In 2017 Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source in the 2016 election.

Because of this we were targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.

The Gateway Pundit does not rely on Facebook for our traffic numbers. Still, we saw a significant drop in Facebook traffic in the last month. And this past weekend Facebook shut down our traffic stream from the social media platform.

This is corrupt, if not criminal, behavior.

Meanwhile, liberal sites are doing fine.
