Some sources criticized that this was one of the reason of winning Trump in the recently held Presidential election of the US.

According to some sources and with the some present and past employees of Facebook revealed that a tool is being developed that will hide some specific post from your newsfeed.
This software will filter your news feed according to your country policy. This tool will help a country to maintain its censorship in more easy way.
Facebook itself would not be choosing what is censored. The information would be collected and then passed on to a some third party, which would decide what appears in the timeline of users.
Many analysts are linking this major step by facebook to get back into the china, where FB was blocked since 2009.
China is being a communist nation had banned facebook’s entry in their boundary since 2009 and the facebook founder and the CEO Mark zuckerberg very well know that its political parties will never allow without the strict censorship filters in the facebook.
If anyhow facebook able to access Chinese market with more than 1.4 billion people, will surely get a great boost in their business.
