Facebook is changing your timeline
For the past few months, we have seen changes in our timelines in different social networks including Instagram and Twitter because companies want you to spend more time . However, after them, Facebook is also making changes in the way how the timeline works.
First of all, they already changed the timeline and the new one aims to show more posts from your friends and family over the channels. Also, aside from moving these posts to the top, it also prioritizes posts. According to Facebook, as people likes to be informed and entertained, the new algorithms focuses even more on those two type of posts.
“Your feed should inform. People expect the stories in their feed to be meaningful to them — and we have learned over time that people value stories that they consider informative. Something that one person finds informative or interesting may be different from what another person finds informative or interesting — this could be a post about a current event, a story about your favorite celebrity, a piece of local news, or a recipe. We’re always working to better understand what is interesting and informative to you personally, so those stories appear higher up in your feed.
Your feed should entertain. We’ve also found that people enjoy their feeds as a source of entertainment. For some people, that’s following a celebrity or athlete; for others it’s watching Live videos and sharing funny photos with their friends. We work hard to try to understand and predict what posts on Facebook you find entertaining to make sure you don’t miss out on those. ”
