This is a real game-changer for the users of the Social Media platform.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg has decided to make a change to your News Feed will operate on Facebook – and it’s to help curate your feed to see more of your friends and family.
As of right now, you may be missing a lot of friends posts because of the prioritization of brands and publishers, but CNET says that statues are going to begin to rank higher, and is going to change “the soul of Facebook.”
This is supposed to help us as Facebook users have more “meaningful” interactions and to make sure that Facebook isn’t becoming a negative experience for users.
“We feel a responsibility to make sure our services aren’t just fun to use, but also good for people’s well-being,” Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page. “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.”
People may argue that too much of their social circles are already on Facebook, like your aunt who doesn’t agree with your political stances, but hey, there’s always unfollowing people and still remaining friends, or hiding certain status updates through filters.

Do you think this will be a good change for Facebook? Or will it make you want to use it less?
