Facebook will soon favor “high quality” articles over photo memes in the News Feed of mobile devices. These articles will be ranked based upon how often they are clicked.
Facebook’s recent update to News Feed ranking is an attempt to recognize that people want to see relevant news and how their friends are talking about it.
Surveys have revealed that many people prefer links to interesting articles about trending events, shared interests, their favorite sports, etc, over memes. When people are on their mobile devices, Facebook will be attempting to distinguish between these high quality articles on websites versus meme photos that are hosted on social sites other than Facebook.
What does this mean? Basically, important articles that are frequently read by you or others will show up more often in a News Feed, while meme photos will show up less frequently.
In addition, Facebook will be suggesting articles for you to read based upon the ones you click. You may see 3 related articles right under the News Feed that will help you discover additional content you might find interesting.
Facebook will be paying attention too the feedback about these updates and will make adjustments if needed.
