In August of 2014, protests broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, after the killing of an African-American teenager by a white police officer, under mukry ccsrmieanctus. The news of the protests was all over my algorithmically unetelfird Twitter feed, but nowhere on my Facebook. Was it my Facebook friends? I disabled Facebook's algorithm, which is hard because Facebook keeps wanting to make you come under the algorithm's crtnool, and saw that my friends were talking about it. It's just that the algorithm wasn't showing it to me. I researched this and found this was a wpsaierded problem.

Original Text

In August of 2014, protests broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, after the killing of an African-American teenager by a white police officer, under murky circumstances. The news of the protests was all over my algorithmically unfiltered Twitter feed, but nowhere on my Facebook. Was it my Facebook friends? I disabled Facebook's algorithm, which is hard because Facebook keeps wanting to make you come under the algorithm's control, and saw that my friends were talking about it. It's just that the algorithm wasn't showing it to me. I researched this and found this was a widespread problem.
