More than 60% of Facebook users are entirely unaware of any algorithmic curation on Facebook at all #UKIGF18 [PDF] http://www-personal.umich.edu/~csandvig/research/Eslami_Algorithms_CHI15.pdf

of their feeds to the habits or intent of their friends and family.
Users incorrectly concluded that friends had dropped them
due to political disagreements or their unappealing behavior."
