Great changes of Facebook and the newsfeed of users

In this way Facebook hopes to improve the quality of time you spend browsing Facebook, specifically by showing you things that are most valuable/relevant to you and your particular life - not necessarily things that someone else or some company has paid for you to see.

Facebook Inc shares closed at $179.37 on Friday, down $8.40 (-4.47%).

On top of that, lower organic reach may prompt some businesses to buy more advertising on Facebook.

"No matter how well we do on Facebook and how great our videos are, making high-quality videos itself does not bring us any profit", said Cho. "We will also be looking for any signs that the weighting of news sites is politically motivated".

"Quality journalism remains a key driver of audience, regardless of the distribution channel", said Lau. The social media platform said among its biggest focus areas for 2018 is to ensure that time spent on Facebook is well spent.

This update would be one of the most significant ones we have made. "Pages whose posts prompt conversations between friends will see less of an effect", he wrote in a blog post. It has also been questioned about how its algorithms might have prioritized inaccurate news in News Feeds, thereby, influencing the recent American presidential election. He confirmed that the first changes Facebook users will see will be in News Feed.

While this may be another blow to publishers and brands, many already took the first big hit past year. However, during that time, Facebook's unique audience has continued to grow.

The change was inspired by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's having children. It would take some practice of course-the existing curation is useful because it lets users see a handful of items rather than the hundreds or thousands of things people post-but a company as clever as Facebook can surely provide tools to winnow down the scope on their own. Such a move would be a welcome development, and Media Matters has recommended that Facebook include it in its algorithm.

Seth Meyers doesn't hold back in 2018 Golden Globes monologue
Ahead of the night, the " Late Night " host told The Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be mentioning Donald Trump . Hong Chau of Downsizing then joked, "But those numbers may be off since a white man did the math".

His resolution for 2018 was to "fix" Facebook, according to the South China Morning Post.

An analysis from the Press Association found that the clickbait crackdown has already resulted in decreased engagement for news publishers. Fewer videos in the feed could offset lower engagement levels.

Facebook's artificial intelligence is certainly good enough to identify infant images, and let people choose to see fewer of them-or, if they wish, even more of them.

"Maybe there is less opportunity to be viewed with the prioritization changes, or if we try to talk to everybody on Facebook, it might be harder to come by", she said. That means the experience has largely centered on passive consumption of content. They get what they need from it and then keep scrolling.

Does this mean you are eliminating Page content from News Feed? Video and other public content have exploded on Facebook in the past couple of years. The upshot: "I'm changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions".

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has announced changes to how the social network's news feed works, making posts from businesses, brands and media less prominent.

"People will actually spend less time on Facebook, but we feel good about that because it will make the time they do spend more valuable, and be good for our business in the end", he added.

The research shows that when we use social media to connect with people we care about, it can be good for our well-being.
