Researchers have alleged that Facebook is interfering with the tool used to evaluate Facebook’s news feed. This tool is used by journalists and researchers.

According to a report by a non-profit organization called The Markup, Facebook is adding code to the HTML code created by Facebook for people with vision problems.

As a result, the data that can be collected from the news feed is not being collected. Similarly, the screen reader of people with vision problems is also being affected. This change affects The Markup’s Citizen Browser and New York University’s Ad Observer.

Ad Observer is a browser extension that investigates political ads and vaccine misinformation. Similarly, using a browser-based tool, one can evaluate how the news feed works.

Facebook is claiming that Apple did not change the code in that way. Facebook has also said that it will pay attention to this accusation.
