San Fransico: Facebook’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has announced of the changes that will be made to the News Feed which will allow you to see less public content from business, brands, media, which he believes, “can be good for our well-being.”
Referring to a research conducted on social media, he said, “research that shows when we use social media to connect with people we care about, it can be good for our well-being.”
“Facebook has always been about personal connections. By focusing on bringing people closer together — whether it’s with family and friends, or around important moments in the world — we can help make sure that Facebook is time well spent.”
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.”
Adding that, “We’ve gotten feedback from our 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. It’s easy to understand how we got here. Video and other public content have exploded on Facebook in the past couple of years. Since there’s more public content than posts from your friends and family, the balance of what’s in News Feed has shifted away from the most important thing Facebook can do — help us connect with each other.”
“The first changes you’ll see will be in News Feed, where you can expect to see more from your friends, family and groups,” he wrote.
Mark further stated the after-effects of the changes that are being made in the News Feed. He said, “Now, I want to be clear: by making these changes, I expect the time people spend on Facebook and some measures of engagement will go down. But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable. And if we do the right thing, I believe that will be good for our community and our business over the long term too,” reported Times Now.
