According to a #SEJSurveySays poll, 37 percent of publishers questioned stated that their traffic from Facebook is much lower now compared to this time last year. 27 percent responded that it is somewhat lower. 25 percent answered that their Facebook traffic is about the same as opposed to this time last year’s traffic. Meanwhile, Eleven percent of the respondents said they actually have higher Facebook traffic over the past year.

In December 2017, rumors that a new Facebook algorithm was restricting the number of friends whose content appears in users’ newsfeeds hit the social media network, however, as Snopes reported, this was just an unsubstantiated rumor. In fact, there is really no telling what the logic behind these algorithms are, Facebook keeps these details very private, as do other social media companies.

Facebook is always making updates and tweaking their systems, but sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all the changes. The updates to messenger are always particularly confusing. In an attempt to filter out spam, the company has separated many of our messages.

As some Facebook users have been learning recently, there is a hidden inbox. This inbox is called the “message requests folder.”

The messages in this folder are from people who you are not connected with already on Facebook. This also means that when you send a message to someone who is not your friend on Facebook, they will not directly get your message, but it will be sent to this folder instead.

Facebook has been working hard to repair its reputation after years of controversy, and as a part of creating a new image, the company says that it will be taking a focus on privacy and security. Facebook is taking it a step further by allowing White Hat hackers to test their security systems across all of their services.

According to Hacking Vision:

“Facebook will knowingly break its Certificate Pinning mechanism for its users that use white hat settings. Pinning is used to improve the security of a website that uses SSL. Pinning allows websites to allow or disallow a user by searching for a specific cryptographic identity. SSL Certificate Pinning techniques are often used to defend against sniffing attacks.”

If you think you have what it takes, or if you are just curious, you can enable the White Hat researcher settings by going to the following URL:

This week, we also explained out you can avoid stalkers on social media.

News emerged recently that Facebook fired a security engineer who was accused of using his access to the website’s data to stalk women online. In a statement to the BBC, Chief security officer Alex Stamos said, “We quickly investigated this situation and immediately fired the person.”

“It’s important that people’s information is kept secure and private when they use Facebook. It’s why we have strict policy controls and technical restrictions so employees only access the data they need to do their jobs – for example to fix bugs, manage customer support issues or respond to valid legal requests. Employees who abuse these controls will be fired,” Stamos added.

It was also reported this week that Facebook may soon agree to 20 years of oversight of its privacy policies and practices by the US government. According to Reuters, several U.S. lawmakers have criticized aspects of a potential agreement between the FTC and Facebook that would elevate oversight of privacy policies and practices to Facebook’s board of directors and require the social media company to be more aggressive in policing third-party app developers.
