If you never want to see certain content on your Facebook wall, Facebook is likely to be good news for you. Computer science student Jane Mancun Wang has found codes on Facebook that show the company is looking to prevent certain posts from appearing in words on users' personal wallets.
Of course, this doesn't just end with words, it can also be sentences and emojis. Of course, Facebook itself has not yet confirmed or denied the news, and we just have to be content with claiming to be a computer science student.
Wang, who has a long history of reverse-engineering applications and finding hidden features of software, posted a photo of the feature on Twitter. In this image, a menu appears to allow Facebook users to filter and never view comments and posts that contain specific words, emojis, or sentences.
This feature will not block the creation of posts, and the poster and all other users will see the published post or comment, and the only person who has enabled this feature will not be able to view it.
This system is somewhat far from ideal – in which we can prevent others from using certain words in our personal Facebook profile. However, if this were possible, some would have objected to the possibility of censorship on the platform.
Of course, we have to remember that the final version of this feature is probably different from what we saw in the picture. Instagram, which is now run by Facebook, also has a similar filtering system that can block certain comments that have specific words, but will generally not block the creation of those comments. Of course, Instagram is trying to automatically remove annoying and irrelevant comments.Source
