"During the coming weeks we will begin demoting stories that feature fake video play buttons and static images disguised as videos in News Feed". Facebook is trying a component in the Facebook News Feed that gives redid connections to news on points important to singular clients, as the organization keeps on hunting down approaches to build the measure of time that individuals spend utilizing the world's biggest web-based social networking system. This often confuses people as to why the video isn't playing, but the spammer gain outs of it by still managing a website click. A static-image-as-video is an image disguised as a video.

Videos and GIFs are an increasingly-popular medium on Facebook to express in a way people want to. The social network's engineers Baraa Hamodi, Zahir Bokhari, and Yun Zhang announced in a separate news post that Facebook will be "demoting" stories featuring fake video play buttons or static images that look like videos in the News Feed.

The company makes frequent changes to the News Feed, typically testing potential features at length before making them official.

There's more than one way to safely view the upcoming solar eclipse

Veering away from its hands-off approach when it comes to the contents that users or media outlets post on its platform, it seems Facebook is finally taking the fight to some of the most harmful elements on the web. Last year, the company started identifying common clickbait phrases and suppressing links that either withhold information or create misleading expectations about the linked story.

In May 2016, Facebook changed the procedures behind its " Trending Topics" section after a news report alleged that the company had suppressed conservative news and a Republican U.S. senator demanded more transparency.
