Anti-vax groups use carrot emojis to hide Facebook posts - BBC News
Facebook’s algorithm seems to be struggling.
A first thought might be that people want their content to be seen by a wider audience, but users of the social platform are conjuring up a variety of ways to get their content hidden from automated moderation tools - and emojis seem to be helping.
Facebook’s algorithm tends to focus on words rather than images, so users have been sneaky with their use of emojis. Meta has been faced with multiple anti-vax groups being set up, unbeknownst to them, as users are replacing certain words with a carrot emoji instead. 🥕
The tech giants use algorithms to trawl their platforms for harmful content, but it seems some things are slipping through the net.

Teaching ‘Selfish’ Wind Turbines to Share Can Boost Productivity | WIRED UK
Who knew wind turbines could be so selfish?
Wind turbines function similarly to sunflowers. 🌻 Even though we probably don’t notice it, they rotate left to right in order to face the wind, to maximise the amount of energy that they produce.
But whilst they might be engineered to operate well individually, they appear to struggle to work together in tandem.
When wind flows through a turbine to generate electricity, a wake is created, meaning that turbines that follow use slower and more turbulent wind. A study that was carried out in 2009 estimated that electricity production was reduced by 10 - 20% when the impact across an entire wind farm was added up.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed an algorithm that aims to reduce the wake effect and boost the total output of wind turbines. The algorithm uses atmospheric physics and operational farm data, such as temperature and wind conditions, to estimate the wakes that turbines are creating and how these are impacting other turbines. The algorithm then predicts ways to arrange the turbines so they’re less disruptive to one another.
