Mark Zuckerberg Announces A Big Change In Facebook\'s News Feed

On Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg announces to make major changes in Facebook’s news feed section. He said that the platform will start showing more relevant content instead of unwanted videos and photos.

Facebook CEO wants to bring back the family and friends related content on the news feed by cutting viral topics. The upcoming news feed algorithm will prioritize the content related to the user’s connection according to Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg wrote on this page,

He mentioned that Facebook's core aim is to feel user connected to their family and friend and it is getting back on track to achieve that.

In recent years we have seen that Facebook has become more of a content sharing platform than a place to get connected. Now, Zuckerberg has decided to de-prioritize the business-related posts and videos and deliver more users oriented material on the news feed.

He further added,

 

While going through the Facebook account most of our time spent scrolling through the viral videos, business ads or promotional contents from businesses. The post or comments on any friend's post are very less compared to these promotional contents. Facebook has become more focused on monetizing the space by allowing more and more sponsored and ads by publishers.

The move from the social media giant will de-prioritize the public content that is filled with the user’s comment and likes. This means you will find more friends comments about what they are up to rather than shared video.

However, Zuckerberg accepted that the change will definitely affect some of the businesses and will result in lesser traffic. But, he mentioned that if Facebook will do the right thing for its users then it will be good for business in the long-term. Mark Zuckerberg also wants to make the user’s time spent on social media to be more valuable.
