Friends Get Priority on Facebook’s Latest Newsfeed Tweak
- Reconfiguration of News Feed algorithm
- Facebook is rolling out the latest change to its News Feed algorithm putting emphasis towards status updates, photos and videos
- Posts from other liked pages will appear on the News Feed but they will receive less priority
To cut it short
Facebook has confirmed that direct updates by friends will be higher up in the News Feed so that users don’t miss out on what’s important to them. To accommodate this change, Facebook will push down some News Feed items such as comments on a news story or a stranger’s post liked by a friend. This is the direct result of a survey conducted on Facebook users whereby many users were not happy with their friend’s activity on posts that don’t matter to them!
