Facebook's latest update will show more locals news in your News Feed

30 Janvier 2018

Users who do not follow local news sources will also see more of such content on their News Feed if people within their network are sharing a certain article.

In a blog post explaining the changes, Facebook's head of News Feed, Adam Mosseri, said page posts that generated conversation between people, such as videos posted by "creators", would begin to show up higher in the News Feed. The change takes effect this week and Facebook plans to expand the effort to other countries this year. With Facebook, publishers have an easy platform with unparalleled traffic among which they distribute their content. Facebook provided grounds to many publishers for growing their businesses with incomparable traffic that none of other sites could have. Zuckerberg added that the movie would help promote high quality and trusted news. In effectively sidelining brands, Facebook will automatically boost organic engagement around influencer content even more.

Here's the good news: Facebook has allowed you some leeway.

Also, keep in mind that Facebook constantly changes its interface, so you may have to do some digging if things aren't where we say they are or if the names of options change.

In the last month, this is the third announcement about changes coming to Facebook's News Feed.

We have already seen this happen in several test countries where, in October, Facebook removed nearly all legitmate news from users' main news feeds, putting it instead in a new "Explore" tab. The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has announced the latest change regarding Facebook's News Feed.

Facebook's news feed has another new focus: local news. Clearly, though, Facebook is making all these moves in a bid to convince regulators, investors, and, sure, users, that it's taking meaningful steps to keep fake news off the platform in the run-up to this fall's USA elections.

Have you seen the post from Mark Zuckerberg?

The social network said Monday it will start to emphasize news stories from local publishers in an area where a person lives. Click "see first" and if you want to be the first to know when we go live on Facebook, feel free to click "on" under notifications.

"This update may not capture all small or niche-interest publishers at first, but we are working to improve precision and coverage over time", the company writes in the post.
