Can someone explain to me what Facebook Stack Overflow represents?

This is very similar to the original Stack Overflow site!

    It is basically only a particular view of Stack Overflow. You're still on the exact same site with the exact same content. Just filtered based on Facebook related tags.

  • @Raynold Rather than answer with a copied answer, you should have flagged this question as a dupe. I believe that is supposed standard procedure, but SE is community driven so "decisions" about "policy" change all the time, and I'm not quite sure how it works on the metas where giving help is paramount. =)

    A specific subsection where we get a lot of low quality contributions, and a promise from Facebook staff to contribute to but never came through on.

  • @kiamlaluno could you try to edit in smaller batches? You mostly flushed the front page of MSE today. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but spreading them out a little helps make sure that people who posted shortly before your wave of edits get some attention too. Thanks. Aug 27, 2017 at 17:58

From the Original Source

The http://facebook.stackoverflow.com site is a 'view' on stackoverflow.com, where it only shows questions that have a facebook related tag. In essence, it is the same underlying database, but the question lists are filtered.
