Facebook is testing an algorithm to prevent users from combat suicide

Facebook took a recent suicide wave seriously and announced a test of the system can help detect whether the user is susceptible to this behavior or not.

The company did not disclose further details about the initiative or how it works, but psychologists will participate in the experiment.

The idea that the algorithm will work without any intervention from another user, to identify patterns of behavior and publications to try to analyze the lives of users. There is no expectation of when the system will be applied to all users around the world.

That decision came after at least two cases of suicide, but both were able to save them and persuade them to abandon the idea of ​​suicide.
