In the current media landscape, control over distribution has become almost as important as the actual creation of content, and that has given Facebook a huge amount of power. The impact that Facebook newsfeed has in the formation of opinions in the real world is so huge that it potentially affected the 2016 election decisions, however these newsfeed were not completely accurate. Our solution? FiB because with 1.5 Billion Users, Every Single Tweak in an Algorithm Can Make a Change, and we don't stop at just one.

This project is still under development (a lot of work is required and is also being put in). All of us are Univeristy students trying to help solve a problem social media faces. As university we may sometimes take a while to fix issues or approve pull request, please bear with us. We are always on the lookout for sponsors for this project as we are non-profit and need money to run our servers and cover our API costs.
