Boston, MA – December 3, 2013. Yesterday Facebook announced that they are making changes to our newsfeed, Spoiler Alert, there will be more news. Their goal is to have more quality content rather than some useless Memes.
Facebook is constantly tweaking it’s Edgerank algorithm, making sure you are viewing the most relevant content at the most relevant time. This change will be more visible on mobile devices, according to Facebook.
Since “Social” Media is all about interacting, the content with the most generated conversations will be constantly bumped towards the top of the newsfeed.
There is also another feature that will be utilized and that is a suggested reading section after you click on a news story. If it isn’t obvious, Facebook is going after Twitter’s bread and butter, the news industry.
