Our Content Distribution Guidelines outline some of the types of content that receive reduced distribution in News Feed. As these guidelines develop, we will continue to provide transparency about how we define and treat problematic or low quality content. A summary of updates we make to the Guidelines can be found on our Changes, Corrections and Adjustments page.
Our enforcements to reduce problematic content in News Feed are rooted in our commitment to the values of Responding to People’s Direct Feedback, Incentivizing Publishers to Invest in High-Quality Content, and Fostering a Safer Community.
We’re always eager to receive people’s feedback about what they do and don’t like seeing on Facebook and make changes to News Feed in response.
We want people to have interesting, new material to engage with in the long term, so we create incentives that encourage the creation of this type of content.
Some content may be problematic for our community, whether or not it’s intended that way. We make this content difficult to encounter for people who aren’t actively trying to see it.
