“People will actually spend less time on Facebook, but we feel good about that because it will make the time they do spend more valuable, and be good for our business in the end,” according to News Feed product manager John Hegeman.
This might sound odd to Facebook users but according to Facebook’s creators, their initiative will benefit its user’s lives.
The change to the way Facebook ranks posts will put more weight on social interactions and relationships.
To flourish family and friends’ relationships more, the creators of the leading social networking site decides to show less business post on the newsfeed. According to them, while using Facebook the user will witness more of friends and family’s content rather than brands and media.
Mark Zuckerberg; the co-founder of Facebook, supports the same thought. When asked about this major update Mark said that “I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions.”
We believe that this shift in priorities will soon profit a social media addicts’ life as this change will flourish their personal relationships and amplify their values and emotions towards things they love.
