For those of you who work in social media, I need to share the story of my friend who died, and I didn't know because algorithms.Mon Dec 18 21:05:15 +0000 2017
A friend I've known mostly online for 15+ years died this weekend. Our friendship started on an old gaming forum, but continued on Facebook.Mon Dec 18 21:05:46 +0000 2017
He was part of a group of friends, and we've all stayed connected via Facebook. He didn't post much, but he liked and commented a lot.Mon Dec 18 21:06:16 +0000 2017
I met him once years ago, and just two months ago he told me he'd love to host me and my family down in Portland when we got down there.Mon Dec 18 21:06:47 +0000 2017
I found out from a mutual friend on FB that he'd died, and had been hospitalized. I was shocked. I NEVER saw this in my feed. Ever.Mon Dec 18 21:07:08 +0000 2017
So I flipped to his feed, and sure enough, there'd been a post in November about him being in the hospital. I was never shown this post.Mon Dec 18 21:07:32 +0000 2017
Now, I'm a meticulous FB feed peruser. I always set it to Most Recent and browse until I see the stuff I saw last time. I keep up.Mon Dec 18 21:07:57 +0000 2017
Other friends have confirmed that they too never saw his hospital post. So now we're all horrified. We never knew to reach out.Mon Dec 18 21:08:19 +0000 2017
And worse, we never commented, because we never saw it. Did he die wondering if we cared? He didn't know, and we didn't know.Mon Dec 18 21:08:38 +0000 2017
All because FB's algorithm presumably decided that he didn't post much, so he didn't warrant enough attention in our feeds.Mon Dec 18 21:09:11 +0000 2017
So now today not only have I lost a friend, a bunch of us are horrified that we never knew, and we don't know if he KNEW we didn't know.Mon Dec 18 21:09:37 +0000 2017
