Do you consider yourself a trustworthy person? Just because you do doesn’t mean Facebook does.
Facebook is giving users a score on a scale of zero to one that reflects how good your reputation is, or isn’t.
The Washington Post unearthed the existence of these ratings, and says that Facebook tracks your behavior across its site, and uses that information to give you your secret rating. It’s believed this rating would be used to decide which posts should be promoted higher in users’ News Feeds.
Tessa Lyons, who is in charge of Facebook’s fight against fake news, says a user’s rating “isn’t meant to be an absolute indicator of a person’s credibility” but rather a measurement of how risky a user’s actions may be.
