Facebook is changing its news feed; here’s how to keep seeing stories from the Tahoe Daily Tribune
On Thursday, Jan. 11, Facebook announced it was making big changes to its news feed to show users more content from friends and family over what it calls “passive content” — videos or articles that ask a user to just sit back and watch or read. Posts from businesses, brands and media are expected to have less of a reach unless shared or engaged with by friends and family.
“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,” Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a statement.
We at the Tahoe Daily Tribune believe it is our responsibility to provide our community with the most up-to-date information. Social media has become a useful tool to engage with readers and quickly distribute information. When Facebook makes changes to its news feed, we have less control of how many of our followers see our posts.
