News Feed Integrity
Contextual Profile prioritizes showing information that is most critical to making viewers & commenters feel safe and commenters establish credibility. It creates a separation between private and public profiles, and its goals are different from that of private profiles.
For the first time in Facebook history, we are surfacing users' comment history to the contextual profile. By providing others' comment history, people can now have a quick idea if this person is credible.
Considering people that are more private (such as LGBTQ activists who live in a conservative state), we want to provide the tool to allow people to take down comments that they don't feel comfortable showing.
