Facebook: Cracking the Code

Facebook is still one of the most popular social media networking sites in the world  By using sophisticated algorithms, it has mastered the ability to track a lot of user browsing history, even when you’re not logged on or a registered member of the platform.  This ensures that Facebook can target you with personalised advertising and news to keep you glued for longer. But this feedback loop is fuelling the rise and power of 'fake news'. So how has this social media site cracked the code of human interaction over the internet?
