Facebook is changing what posts you'll see in your News Feed

He declared that he is changing the goal he gives from focusing on helping users find relevant content to helping them have more meaningful social interactions.

About the new change, he writes, "You'll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and the media".

In a series of public comments, Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged what many people already knew: Facebook has become an unpleasant place that can make users feel lonely and frustrated. 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.

"And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard - it should encourage meaningful interactions between people".

This update would be one of the most significant ones we have made.

"While we welcome changes that reward quality and confront clickbait, it is too soon to say how these proposals will play out in the real world, so we intend to monitor the impact closely to determine their effects", News Corp told NBC News in a statement.

The biggest change in years to Facebook's main interface - its News Feed - is a direct result of the social network's CEO's having kids and rethinking what he wants his legacy to be.

Facebook says it will surface posts from friends more prominently in the News Feed than those from brands and publishers. Months before the company went public in 2012, Facebook started featuring "sponsored story" ads in users' feeds, and it rolled out mobile advertising that same year.

We understand where Facebook is coming from.

The changes fell short of a more radical move to split Facebook's news feed in two, which had been expected by some in the industry.

Facebook recently announced it will be changing its feed and algorithms so that news from publishers and posts from businesses will be relegated in favor of posts about your neighbor's cat.

The biggest changes will come to pages that repeatedly post but don't see quality engagement, said Adam Mosseri, Facebook's head of news feed.

Facebook's product teams have focused heavily over the past few years on helping users find new content that is relevant to their interests.

By close of business on Friday Facebook shares were trading at $179.37, down more than 4.4 per cent on Thursday's price of $187.77. That means the experience has largely centered on passive consumption of content. And news can help start conversations on important issues.

"We believe these changes will be beneficial to Facebook in the medium and long term", said Mr Brian Weiser of the Pivotal Research Group.

At its best, Facebook has always been about personal connections.

He added that people would be spending less time on Facebook and we feel good about it as that would make them rejoice and enjoy the little time they would spend on using or scrolling Facebook, which would eventually be good for the business.

Rather than bringing people together, users have been led to passively.
