Experts Facebook check algorithms in its social networks on racial discrimination, the newspaper the Wall Street Journal. For conducting such assessments will form a special Committee.
“the Experts will compare how social media handled the data for the users, in particular, from among white, African American and Hispanic residents of the United States. This analysis will allow to understand whether there is a special relationship to users on the basis of race” – with reference to the source TASS.
