Mark Zuckerberg Has Lost This Much Money for Changing Facebook's Feed

News Feed FYI: Bringing People Closer Together | Facebook Newsroom

Roselle said a lot of her friends aren't even on Facebook anymore, because they got exhausted of seeing ads.

While many might have thought the move would throw marketers into a state of panic, Diane Yap, head of marketing at AXA called the move as a smart and commercial one. A different byproduct of this is that Facebook can now make a bigger push for Watch, its original video content platform, where it has more control over the kind of stuff its users are viewing.

If content shared on Facebook is now less likely to appear organically on the Newsfeed, will we start to see publishers coughing up and paying for more of their content to be promoted to Facebook users? But knowing Facebook, don't be surprised if in a few years the tables are flipped.

He did not mention advertising content and whether the company plans to reduce this as well to help users focus on interacting with people who are important to them.

The CEO said that Facebook has got a feedback from the community that public content - posts from businesses, brands and media - is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.

"We can feel more connected and less lonely, and that correlates with long term measures of happiness and health", he wrote. On the other hand, passively reading articles or watching videos - even if they're entertaining or informative - may not be as good. "Analysts believe publishers are going to lose web traffic because of Facebook's new algorithms and that will make it even more imperative to engage readers directly with their content. Readers loyally pay for news they can trust and will be forced to get it directly from those trusted source, rather than third parties".

"In order to maximize its share of human attention, Facebook employed techniques designed to create an addiction to its platform", he wrote.

It also comes following academic and expert research published by Facebook last month which showed using social media can in fact leave consumers feeling worse.

This is hard to verify independently since the company is cautious about providing data to outsiders.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg unveiled that Facebook's top priority this year is to ensure users are happy on the platform.

There is another fundamental reason that has pushed the rich number 1 of Facebook to intervene to change the situation: #The Fake News.

So, in essence, the change in the social media's algorithm for how individuals view content on their "feed", will no rank personal posts over those of businesses and media organizations.

The European commissioner responsible for digital affairs, Mariya Gabriel, said "fake news is spreading at a worrying rate". Yellow Journalism is alive and well in the 21st century. The bullet indicates the result of the personalization system of searches on sites made by each user of Facebook and has as a effect "extreme" the closure of each user within a given information bubble. Facebook is the home of shallowness and the vapid.and the very structure of the thing will keep it that way.
