Facebook is currently most successful social media site which enables you to be updated with the posts of your family and friends. Due to very high popularity and user-friendly service provided by Facebook, it is the most potential platform for the media to spread the news and current affairs worldwide. With the help of well-advertised posts, the media gets the views of the audience on trending news.
This Wednesday Facebook announced that it will now give priorities to the posts coming from user’s friends and family members. It will keep an option of ‘more posts from family and friends’ on the news feed page.
Facebook vice president Adam Mosseri said in a blog post that an updated algorithm that determines what users see would help people find information that matters to them. “We are not in the business of picking which issues the world should read about,” he wrote. “We are in the business of connecting people and ideas — and matching people with the stories they find most meaningful.” “Our integrity depends on being inclusive of all perspectives and viewpoints, and using ranking to connect people with the stories and sources they find the most meaningful and engaging.”
With this update, users will be able to watch all the posts they care at one place. The media is not happy with this decision. Also, because the Facebook is the major provider of the news to the youth, it is forecasted that audience will miss most of the current affairs.
