  • A Facebook insider claims the company is actively demoting some posts
  • She claims in an interview conservative media and people are being targeted  
  • Software manipulation turns off notifications, shares and visibility to posts 
  • The social media firm has pushed back at the allegations and called it a ‘stunt’ 

An ex-Facebook employee claims the social media platform is censoring content from some conservative publishers and commentators.

The California-based social media giant has been accused of using software manipulation or ‘special features’ to ‘deboost’ traffic to certain sites and individuals, especially near elections.

Facebook has denied the allegations – and claims ex-employee was fired a year ago for ‘breaking multiple employment policies’. The individual now works for the publication that published the exposé – Project Veritas, a right-wing activist group.

The unnamed ex-employee was hired as a content review analyst in Facebook’s intellectual property department and was responsible for copyright and trademark claims.
