Facebook has just announced a drastic change to their newsfeed algorithm. Facebook wants to show you more news from your friends — and less news from journalists.
Mark Zuckerberg has stated plain as day that users will see a lot fewer posts from business pages – and more content from their friends and family.
This time it wants to bring it back to friends and family instead of viral videos and media posts, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a post Thursday.
The first main concern on Zuckerberg’s list is drastic but maybe predictable, move. In light of ongoing turmoil surrounding “fake news,” Zuckerberg says Facebook will now be moving away from “public content” — including posts from businesses, brands and media outlets— and in the direction of more shared content from your friends, family, and Facebook groups.
Zuckerberg said the change should make everybody experience better: “The investigation shows that when we use social media to connect with the public we care about, it can be good for our well-being. We can feel more associated and less feeling alone, and that correlates with extended term measures of pleasure and health.”
With fewer posts from brands, businesses, and media, expect to see more of what your “friends” are sharing and liking.
