The reason behind fake bomb news in Thailand & Facebook safety check

The social networking giant Facebook turned on its safety check last night at around 9 pm because of the fake news that triggered its algorithm.

Facebook has set up its algorithm on news feed which triggers its algorithm to report if there are any blasts in the city.

It is reported that Facebook’s algorithm picked up the news from bangkokinformer.com which ran an old report of Erawan shrine blasts in August 2015. Bangkokinformer.com ran the old video report reporting the Erawan Shrine blasts on Tuesday roughly around 8 pm.

Facebook news algorithm re-run the old video report as new therefore turning on the safety check.

Bangkokinformer.com is in maintenance mode since late Tuesday night after the incidence.

The safety check was turned off in an hour around 10 pm by Facebook.
