Facebook Could Lose $23 Billion After Revealing News Feed Change

This is as simple as asking them to comment or like if they like it your content.

Also, one of the site's founders has also talked about Facebook addiction. The reason that financial opinion is divided on the recent changes at Facebook is that many of those changes have yet to be fully enacted yet, and the long-term ramifications of those changes are even more unknown. Research shows that strengthening our relationships improves our well-being and happiness, Zuckerberg wrote. A USA Today/Suffolk University poll published in October found that Americans believed by a two-to-one margin that Facebook should have done more to identify and reveal the Russian ads. On the other hand, passively reading articles or watching videos - even if they're entertaining or informative - may not be as good.

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg outlined upcoming algorithmic changes to what Facebook shows you on your Newsfeed. But that's all about to change, as Facebook has announced that there are big adjustments coming to its News Feed. The tests occurred in Sri Lanka, Bolivia, Slovakia, Serbia, Guatemala and Cambodia.

"Video and other public content have exploded on Facebook in the past couple of years" Zuckerberg writes. "Facebook is listening to feedback and adjusting the product to better serve customers". We see some of our publishing clients listing events, promoting job boards, hosting awards, sharing whitepapers, offering a range of sponsored content formats and exploring e-commerce or affiliates to name but a few methods for achieving revenue diversification. Less time, of course, means fewer advertising eyeballs at any given time. "For brands, this will mean more doing than saying".

Facebook's news feed move was seen as a response from the company to criticism it has faced over the past 12 months for its failure to prevent hate speech and abuse on its platform, and for the sheer power and influence it wields over society.

While the group aspect of Facebook severely limits the number of people who see a post and may not drive the same amount of traffic back to a publication's homepage, members will continue to see a publication or brand's presence.

The should have community managers and social media teams study user data to see what their page followers have clicked and commented on and what gets conversations started on their pages.

The News Feed is the landing page that users of the social network's site find themselves on when they connect to Facebook.

By tweaking the news feed, people are encouraged to discuss their personal lives.

‘We built Facebook to help people stay connected and bring us closer together with the people that matter to us.

"As we roll this out, you will see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media".

"But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable", he added.

You know how you've been seeing a bit more of your friends and family highlighting their most meaningful moments?

Facebook has always been an uncomfortable presence in the world of online media.

Zuckerberg also admitted Facebook as a whole will see a drop in some measures of engagement. If Mark Zuckerberg is truly anxious about his legacy and that of Facebook, casting legitimate news publishers and businesses into the abyss will only further tarnish an image that is already deeply damaged. Facebook said it quickly shut that capability down.
