Social media giant Facebook is training its employees to identify and check their political leanings to address the concerns over the treatment of conservative viewpoints on the social network. “Facebook plans to add a section on ‘political bias’ to its class on ‘managing bias.’ All Facebook executives and many employees have taken the class which focuses on identifying and neutralising racial, age, gender and other types of bias,” Wall Street Journal quoted Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Facebook, as saying. Facebook wants to be a platform for an open exchange of ideas, Sandberg added.
