NEW DELHI : Social media giant Facebook has reportedly released a report that it held back earlier due to concerns that it would lead to criticism of the company. Last week, the social media firm added a new section to its Transparency Report, detailing the ‘most viewed posts’ on Facebook in the second quarter of 2021. However, the New York Times later reported that Facebook had held back the Q1 version of the same report because some of the content could make the company look bad and fuel criticism that it aids the spread of fake news.
