Facebook has been in the news a lot lately, and not necessarily in a good way. The social media giant has come under fire for a variety of issues, from its handling of user data to its algorithm changes that have led to decreased reach for businesses and publishers.
Facebook has also been criticized for its role in the spread of fake news and misinformation. In the face of all this negative press, Facebook seems to be ducking the big issue.
Instead of addressing the problems head-on, Facebook has been trying to deflect attention by making small changes and announcing new features.
For example, Facebook recently changed its newsfeed algorithm again, causing even more publishers to complain about decreased reach.
And while Facebook says it is working on ways to combat fake news, it has yet to provide any concrete solutions.
As Facebook continues to duck the big issue, it remains to be seen how long users will remain loyal to the social media platform.
How Facebook prevents from ducks’ issue
It’s no secret that Facebook has been under fire for how it handles user data. But the social media giant is also facing criticism for how it treats the ducks that live near its headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
The problem began when Facebook built a new campus on the site of a former duck pond. The pond had been a popular gathering spot for ducks, but it was filled in as part of the construction process. This left the ducks without a place to congregate, and they soon began congregating on the nearby Facebook campus instead.
The ducks became a nuisance, and Facebook decided to act. The company installed netting around the perimeter of the campus to keep the ducks out. However, this solution has not been entirely effective, and the ducks have continued to cause problems. In response, Facebook has hired a company that specializes in duck removal. The company uses a variety of methods to keep the ducks away from the Facebook campus, including loudspeakers that play sounds that deter ducks and nets that are designed to catch them. So far, these efforts seem to be having some success, and the number of ducks on the Facebook campus has begun to decline.
