Facebook Makes Major Changes to News Feed to Focus on Personal Posts
Posts from businesses, brands and media will be less prominent.
Last week Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the social media platform will be making major changes to its news feed, focusing more on personal posts from friends and family and less on public content like news posts. According to Zuckerberg’s post, the company has done research that shows that connecting with each other strengthens our relationships, improving our well-being and happiness, but reading articles and watching videos ‘may not be as good.’ Content from businesses, brands and media will be featured less prominently.
