Justin Bieber is angry over the way the Google image algorithm selects what photos fans see when they search for his name. Specifically, the pop star doesn’t want the search engine showing him during the tough times of his life.
How did he express himself? Like most folks these days, he took to social media to request the media make better publishing decisions.
How It Happened
Bieber did a Google search of the Instagram Stories which had the highest fan engagement. He was disappointed to see the top shares came from his YouTube documentary. The docuseries launched this January when he was battling Lyme disease.
“I don’t know what the algorithm is for why certain photos come up, but this is so frustrating considering that I took a lot of time to get healthy,” he complained. The star then shared an accompanying video, saying he felt people were attempting to sabotage him.
“I don’t know if they do it because they try to… There are so many new photos that I’ve serviced to the media and they continue to use these photos.”
“It’s like, ‘What’s the deal…? It’s frustrating me. I wish they would change it. I’ve asked them to change it. I’ve done a lot of photoshoots since then and, yeah, they don’t have to put these photos (out), but they do… There are so many photos they can choose (from).”
