Instagram Promoting “Diet” Content

Instagram algorithm had promoted diet content to users with eating disorders but the company has since apologised. A spokesman for Facebook said it was a “mistake ” and he added that “We recently rolled out a new search functionality on Instagram beyond hashtags and usernames, to help you more easily discover and explore content you’re most interested in,”.

“As part of this new feature, when you tap on the search bar, we’ll suggest topics you may want to search for.

“Those suggestions, as well as the search results themselves, are limited to general interests, and weight loss should not have been one of them.” Do you think also other tech platforms could be doing worse than that ?
