Facebook thinks it knows what’s best for you whether you like it or not

22 sec read

Facebook intends to change how its News Feed prioritizes news and updates in the near future. The News feed will soon filter out “low quality” posts while also boosting “high quality” posts. However, people are concerned that this will take away from their experience because what Facebook considers “high quality” and what an individual considers “high quality” could be two very different things. 

Facebook recently announced that it plans to change how its News Feed prioritizes news and updates. Basically, “high quality” news stories and new comments on old status updates will get a boost, whereas meme-centric posts (i.e., a Grumpy Cat Imgur-made image) will not.

  1. In advance, I just want to thank Big Bro for filtering things for me. I don’t know what I would do without their wise counsel.
