Social Media Illustrations Facebook is in hot water over autocomplete. Nur

Facebook indicated that it doesn't know why those search terms were suggested to users.

So if a sizable share of users typically search for "movie showtimes", then Facebook will suggest that word combination after other users search for the word "movie". The first autocomplete was "video of girl sucking d-".

Facebook is the most recent company to come under fire for showing inappropriate search results for "video of", but the problem isn't limited to the organization at all. The posts you see from your friends and the advertisements included are all adjusted in the way that Facebook believes will return the best results.

The search results were back to normal after a couple of hours, but Bennett again tried to search in Spanish and he wrote "videos de..." and the second result that it suggest him was live sex videos.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The same publication revealed that Facebook asked users if they find it acceptable for pedophiles to proposition children online.

Facebook has more than 2 billion users around the world and any changes on the social networking site can not go unnoticed.

By way of explanation, Facebook said its search predictions are representative of what users are searching for, and common search patters.

Google's autocomplete results have programmed with the algorithms which learn about the what the people usually search. Users also noted that the fix was rolled out to remove the NSFW suggestions, but there was still an issue. So Google has had to adjust the algorithm to banish autocomplete results that are violent, hateful, sexually explicit or unsafe, in violation of the company's rules.
