CITY OF LIGHT, CITY OF ... SKIS?
Nathan goes for a quick run down Paris' historic Montmartre hill below the Sacre Coeur Basilica on Wednesday, as wintry temperatures brought snow over a large part of northern France and COVID-19 has shut down ski resorts.
Facebook said on Wednesday it would temporarily reduce political content appearing on New Feeds for some users in Canada, Brazil and Indonesia this week and in the United States within the coming weeks. CEO Mark Zuckerberg, shown, said that he wanted to “turn down the temperature” of political conversations on the social networking site because “people don't want politics and fighting to take over their experience on our services.” The world's largest social network last month said it would stop recommending civic and political groups to users. Reducing the frequency of political content will mark initial steps to explore different ways to rank such content in people's feeds using different signals and understand their preferences, the company said.
