Facebook Gets its Published Priorities Straight

Facebook Gets its Published Piorities StraightIs your Facebook newsfeed cluttered with too many posts from pages you barely care about, if at all, while comments and pictures from the people you know and love are buried below?

If so, you’ll be happy with Facebook’s announcement yesterday — something that many page owners, however, may feel differently about.

“We’ve… learned that people are worried about missing important updates from the friends they care about,” Facebook said in a post Tuesday.

“For people with many connections this is particularly important, as there is a lot of content for them to see each day,” the message concludes, noting that the update “tries to ensure that content posted directly by the friends you care about, such as photos, videos, status updates or links, will be higher up in News Feed so you are less likely to miss it.”

If you like to read news or interact with posts from pages you care about, you will still see that content in News Feed. This update tries to make the balance of content the right one for each individual person.
