You may Miss important Facebook Posts with the latest change. Time to time Facebook tweaks its news feed algorithm to serve better stories to everyone through the news feed. A couple of days back Facebook changed the news feed algorithm again.
With the latest change, Facebook serves more stories from your Friends and Family members while scrolling through the News Feed. It sets low priority for the people whom you follow for the updates like me.
Why this change?
Facebook placed a threshold on the number of posts that can be visible to every individual on a daily basis. As per the threshold, Facebook shows only a maximum of 1500 posts per day to an average Facebook user. Keeping this in mind, Facebook tweaks the news feed algorithm time to time to serve more quality and desired posts to every Facebook user.
There may be a lot of sources that populate posting to your Facebook news feed such as posts from your friends, family members, people you follow, apps and games your friends installed, etc. But it is the responsibility of the Facebook to strip away all unimportant content and displays quality content to you while browsing the news feed.
What about people you follow?
Now with the latest Facebook tweak, posts from your friends and family members will be prioritized. You may miss important content from the people you follow. For example, 46000 followers of my FB account expect new updates from me whenever they open Facebook. I even posted an update, and there may be little chance to get it in your news feed with the latest change.
So you have a fantastic option to overcome this problem, open my profile and at the “following” button, select “Set First” to never miss my updates. Like this, you can get all the important updates from all the people you follow along with your Family and Friends.
