The King is dead! Long live the King!

Ok, the King isn’t really dead but Facebook’s EdgeRank is. Facebook now uses more than 100,000 factors in it’s algorithm to determine what is in your Facebook feed. That’s in addition to the original 3 found in EdgeRank: weight, affinity and time.

I’ve written about EdgeRank in the (past. Just like Facebook, what once was simple now is complex. It is also a reason why I don’t like Facebook as much. I don’t like missing posts from friends who only post once in a blue moon.

So what are your thoughts on Facebook’s algorithms that create what they think you want to see most? Please share in the comments section.
