How Breitbart managed to avoid the "misinformation, hate speech or clickbait" criteria? :-k
This seems like a textbook example of smart people doing dumb stuff. The far right isn't going to cut Facebook any slack for this, and it just became a more odious entity by doing what it does, twisting the rules it says it follows.

It seems facebook modifies image metadata (specifically some IPTC tags) on photos uploaded there, allowing them to track the original source if it gets downloaded and posted elsewhere

https://iptc.org/news/what-does-faceboo ... -metadata/
IPTC tests showed when a Facebook member uploads an image to the Facebook system it removes a lot of fields, keeps only a few related to rights and replaces or adds values to the Job Id and the Instructions fields. The role of these values is not publicly documented by Facebook, so they are currently the subject of significant speculation.

No one likes Facebook, right or left, situation or opposition. And Facebook only pretends to care.
