Heads up, Facebook users, because the giant social network has announced that it’s tweaking its News Feed once again.
Facebook has announced that it’s updating the News Feed to “prioritize posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people.” To achieve this, Facebook will try to predict which posts you’ll want to interact with your friends on and then show those higher in your News Feed.
Facebook will also prioritize posts from friends and family over public content.
These changes mean that Facebook will show you less public content, such as posts from publishers and businesses. If there are specific Pages that you’d like to make sure that you see posts from, you can check “See First in News Feed Preferences”.
As for why this change is being made, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that Facebook has gotten feed back that posts from businesses, brands, and media are “crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.” Zuckerberg goes on to say that Facebook has looked at academic research and done research of its own and determined that it can be good for a person’s well-being to connect with people they care about on social media.
These News Feed changes will be rolling out over the next few months.
