Facebook Dark Mode: Android issues OVER? Here's what Facebook said - All details here
Facebook Dark Mode Android issues: After some users reported that Dark Mode option on the most widely used social media platform Facebook disappeared without warning from iOS and Android, the company has now said that Dark Mode back is on In the iPhone app and confirmed that Android users should have their issues resolved now too.
"We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing certain features on Facebook's Android app. We have restored service for those who experienced a technical issue that caused some people to have trouble accessing certain features on Facebook’s Android app," a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying to Tom's Guide when contacted them about the issue.
This isn't the first time in recent weeks that the problem has flared up. On May 5, some Android users reported a similar issue with Dark Mode in Facebook. Users can activate Facebook's Dark Mode by going to the hamburger icon menu in the mobile app, selecting Settings & Privacy and heading to Dark Mode.
Meanwhile, Facebook has announced to push down all posts by users who repeatedly share misinformation and fake content across its platforms, as it expands its fact-checking programme to individuals from Pages, Groups, Instagram accounts and domains.
The social network said in a statement late on Wednesday that the new rule applies on false or misleading content about Covid-19 and vaccines, climate change, elections or other topics, so that fewer people see misinformation on its family apps.
"We will reduce the distribution of all posts in News Feed from an individual's Facebook account if they repeatedly share content that has been rated by one of our fact-checking partners. We already reduce a single post's reach in News Feed if it has been debunked," Facebook informed.
The company currently notifies people when they share content that a fact-checker later rates. Now, Facebook has redesigned these notifications to make it easier to understand when this happens. The notification includes the fact-checker's article debunking the claim as well as a prompt to share the article with their followers.
