About Inside Feed

Back to Inside Feed

People tell us that they want to know more about how Facebook works. They want to understand the algorithms that power News Feed, the ways in which data is used on the platform and the methods we use to help keep people safe.

With Inside Feed, we aim to shed more light on the people and processes behind our products. Through the videos and articles on this site, we hope that the people who write about us, the people who work with us, and anyone with an interest in what we do at Facebook comes away with a better understanding of how our technology works and why.

Last year, we launched Hard Questions, our series that addresses the impact of our products on society. We hope that Inside Feed takes the additional step to answer questions about how these products work.

We’re excited about this effort and want to know what you’d like to see covered and how. If there’s a question you’d like answered or a topic you want us to consider, drop us a note at
