    Facing facts: Facebook's News Feed change is too little too late

    3 monthes ago - By TechRadar

    I can't remember the last time I had a meaningful interaction on Facebook. Messenger, sure - if a friend cannot be contacted in any other way, I may resort to Facebook's relatively uncluttered instant chat service. But within the News Feed, that once-so-alluring torrent of thoughts, feelings, comment and action that had made the early years of Facebook so addictive and seemingly revolutionary? That's gone. That's dead. And it's not been for want of trying on Facebook's part - on a semi regular basis it has tweaked and reworked the News Feed in an attempt to better represent your...

  • Facebook Is Making The News Feed Much More Friends-Focused

    3 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    Facebook is doing a major overhaul of its service designed to make it more focused on friends, i.e. content on people you personally know, as revealed by the company's Thursday announcement that identified a “meaningful” user experience as the main goal of the decision to do so on several occasions. The change will be rolled out on a global level in the coming months and come in the form of a News Feed algorithm update that will instruct the brains behind the order of items on Facebook's landing page to deprioritize “relevant content” served by pages, groups, and accounts you follow, i.e...

  • Why Facebook's news feed is changing - and how it will affect you

    3 monthes ago - By The Guardian

    The social media site wants its users to ‘have more meaningful interactions', but what does that mean in practice? The company is altering the algorithm that runs the news feed, which displays a computer-curated selection of posts from other users and Facebook pages. No longer will it prioritise “helping you find relevant content”, says the site's founder, Mark Zuckerberg. The new goal is to help you “have more meaningful interactions”.

    Why Facebook's news feed shake-up may be a smart move to squeeze more money from publishers

    3 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    Facebook will change its news feed so that people will see more updates from friends and family, and fewer organic posts from news publishers and brands.
    It's a drastic change for Facebook, which thinks that "passive" news consumption is bad for people's mental health.
    But it's also a canny commercial move, analysts told Business Insider, because now Facebook can squeeze money out of publishers to appear in the news feed.
    Many publishers get huge amounts of referral traffic from Facebook and might turn instead to Google as a more reliable platform partner.
