Facebook is changing the way you see your newsfeed. Instead of just seeing a real time news feed, you will now get to experience the top post’s by your friends based on how many people comment and like on stories, who you’re close with, and who you interact with frequently. This new name for the news feed will be “Todays top News”.
Facebook is also reissuing user activity stories back to the News Feed – like friend acceptances, relationship updates, event RSVPs, group memberships, and becoming a fan of a Page. In the real time stream, only explicitly “shared” content appeared in the stream.
The real-time stream will still be available by clicking the “live feed” tab at the top of the page. Instead of having to click to get the new updates to open, it will actually be a live feed.
By changing this feature, Facebook believes it will maximize user engagement, and bring the most valuable content to users.
Im definitely interested in seeing how and if this will change the way people check Facebook. When any new information comes in I will post an update.
