Jay gives some great information before explaining these '3 Ways', to give us an idea of how Facebook's algorithm currently works:
Facebook has altered the math of the game so that only posts that get a disproportionate amount of engagement (likes, clicks, comments, shares) will be seen by a lot of people – regardless of whether those people are fans or friends. This opens up more real estate for Promoted Posts (ads) from companies or people. That’s right, Facebook also (somewhat quietly) announced that they are opening up the option for individuals to buy exposure on a per-post basis. So, if you want even more people to see your cat doing that funny thing, you can spend $7 to make it so.He then clearly and succinctly (yay!) explains the 3 ways to take control of your News Feed which I've listed below:
1. Change Your News Feed Setting to Most Recent
2. Use Facebook’s Friends Organizer Tool
3. Change Story Preferences For IndividualsSo, I recommend you check out Jay's article and make a stronger effort to see what you want to see on your Feed and/or change it up once in a while to make it more interesting. I've done the changes already. Let me know how you make out.
