Facebook changes its news feed to focus on friends and family

Gomez was convicted Thursday of killing her daughter

Zuck said that the change is a direct reflection of being a father, and that he's willing to accept "short term" losses Facebook may face as a result.

The idea comes in their mind and is being implemented after they have received feedback from community that public content- posts from businesses, brands and media- is crowding out the personal moments that lead people to connect more with each other.

In his Facebook Post, Mark noted the changes that will be made to Facebook's News Feed and wrote: "One of our big focus areas for 2018 is making sure the time we all spend on Facebook is time well spent".

"The research shows that when we use social media to connect with people we care about, it can be good for our well-being". "We can feel more connected and less lonely, and that correlates with long term measures of happiness and health".

Zuckerberg notes that "it's easy to understand how we got here", saying that there's been an explosion of video and other types of public content that has "exploded" on Facebook in recent years.

Navios Maritime Partners (NMM) Now Covered by Jefferies Group
Hsbc Pcl owns 13.80 million shares. 132.17 million shares or 4.64% more from 126.30 million shares in 2017Q2 were reported. The stock of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) earned "Buy" rating by Bank of America on Tuesday, November 14.

"These are posts that inspire back-and-forth discussion in the comments and posts that you might want to share and react to - whether that's a post from a friend seeking advice, a friend asking for recommendations for a trip, or a news article or video prompting lots of discussion", the company said. "But too often today, watching video, reading news or getting a page update is just a passive experience", he wrote. They were previously given the mandate to help users find relevant content.

Facebook's algorithm - think of that as a complex digital recipe for deciding what shows in each person's News Feed - will now prioritize posts from friends and family that "spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people".

What's unclear is whether the changes could perpetuate an echo chamber effect, assuming users are more likely to interact with posts that reinforce their beliefs. And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard, says Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg said he hoped the shake-up would boost the well-being of Facebook's two-billion-member community and make their time spent on the site "more valuable".

A shift away from non-ad content produced by businesses is a potentially severe blow to news organizations, many of which use Facebook to drive readership, but Zuckerberg said many such posts have been unhealthy.
