Can Facebook trust you?
That’s the question the tech giant wants answered — and it has begun scoring its users based on their “trustworthiness,” the company said on Tuesday.
Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has developed a rating system over the past year in an attempt to identify malicious actors, it said.
The goal of the system is to better evaluate feedback from users who flag content on Facebook as false or malicious, according to the Washington Post, which first reported on the scoring system.
Users will be scored — ranging from 0 to 1 — rating their trustworthiness, to better help Facebook’s algorithm know when a flagged post should be removed or left alone.
