Facebook making newsfeed changes again

Under the pretense of “building a better newsfeed,” Facebook says it’s going to make more changes.

The official news release says that “friends and family” should come first, and it will use the data you provide to determine what you see first.

“To help make sure you don’t miss the friends and family posts you are likely to care about, we put those posts toward the top of your News Feed. We learn from you and adapt over time. For example, if you tend to like photos from your sister, we’ll start putting her posts closer to the top of your feed so you won’t miss what she posted while you were away,” Facebook said.

This may mean you won’t see as much mass media content.

” Something that one person finds informative or interesting may be different from what another person finds informative or interesting — this could be a post about a current event, a story about your favorite celebrity, a piece of local news, or a recipe,” the release stated.

Facebook says it’s working to learn more about how users consume media on their social media site and will continuously adapt to ever-changing habits.
