Facebook Updates News Feed (Again)

Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm again. What does this mean for you? It means that they want more people to know what is going on around them…and by pushing more stories with the most comments, the most shares, and the most likes to the top of your feed, they believe you will want to see that story. Almost one third of people use Facebook to get their news. So, Facebook wants to make sure more people can see the “newsworthy” posts first.

Personally, I don’t like the News Feed default and prefer the All Friends feed. If something hasn’t been commented on or liked you can miss a lot (cure the Fear of Missing Out (#FOMO) music). That said what if your constituents don’t see a post announcing a new advocacy initiative? What if you don’t have many followers on your page yet? Your posts may end up being missed by those who do follow or like you.

Which feed do you prefer?
