Facebook to demote links of websites republishing stolen content

CALIFORNIA: Facebook has updated its policy for the News Feed where links from websites promoting stolen content will be demoted. The target for the social network is to push interesting stories to users over posts which are not relevant.

According to Engadget, Facebook has updated its AI system to better detect websites which scrape content or republish articles from other sources, without correct attribution or making very little changes without permission.

Facebook explains that users will now be shown fewer posts with low-quality sites that predominantly copy and republish content from other sites without adding any unique value.
