How Facebook Hurts Independent Media

Is Facebook running an experiment that shunts independent media to the periphery in countries where it is needed most? Stevan Djovinvic, director of GIJN member KRIK, a nonprofit investigative newsroom in Serbia, is sounding the alarm on how small countries have become "an unwilling laboratory for Facebook’s experiments on user behavior." KRIK's award-winning stories, one of the few independent voices left in Serbia's narrow media market, are no longer appearing on the Facebook news feed.
