BBC Minute: On Facebook's News Feed
14 January, 2018, 00:30
Tweaking users' feeds may cause the social media platform to lose some of its luster for content producers or media companies, especially video makers that can not make money on Facebook regardless of how many of their videos go viral, said Cho Sodam, founder of Dotface, a youth-oriented media startup based in Seoul, South Korea. "But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable", said Zuckerberg.
Those personal updates will therefore become more prevalent in user newsfeeds, he said, adding that posts from other sources will still get promoted if they help encourage social interactions.
Zuckerberg said in a post on Facebook that the changes would be "major" and lead to a short-term drop in the time spent on the network, but that it would be better for users and for the business over the long term.
Mark Zuckerberg-Facebook Chief and Co-founder mentioned that bringing people together and making stronger ties within the communities in the real world are the priorities.

Facebook rolls out major changes in news feeds to promote more meaningful discussions.
Facebook says that if people want to see more posts from pages they follow, such as Legacy Medi4, they should always select "See First" for that particular page within their news feed preference settings - which you can find located in the upper right hand corner of your Facebook feed once logged in, just above account settings. Though these efforts have thus far been far from effective, the new changes threaten to undercut the measures even more.

Conversation is at the centre of Facebook's new approach, according to the organization's explanation for the change. But too often today, watching video, reading news or getting a page update is just a passive experience.
But Gavin Adamson, who teaches digital media courses at Ryerson University's School of Journalism, said outlets will also have to rely on changes in reader behaviour if they hope to make up potential losses caused by Facebook's new focus.
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.
