Facebook News Feed Updates: This Week in Social Media

social media researchWelcome to our weekly edition of what’s hot in social media news. To help you stay up to date with social media, here are some of the news items that caught our attention.

What’s New This Week?

Facebook News Feed Update Delivers Higher-Quality Content: Facebook will “be doing a better job of distinguishing between a high-quality article on a website versus a meme photo hosted somewhere other than Facebook when people click on those stories on mobile. This means that high-quality articles you or others read may show up a bit more prominently in your news feed, and meme photos may show up a bit less prominently.”

social media how to

Are you wondering how to respond to the Facebook news feed changes?

Have you figured out how Story Bump can help your content remain top of mind with Facebook fans?

If you want to understand how these Facebook changes will impact your marketing, this article is for you.

Keep reading to discover how to take advantage of Story Bump.

What is Story Bump?

Facebook announced that they’ve tweaked their algorithm known as EdgeRank to allow stories that are getting more engagement (more likes, comments and shares) to be bumped up in the news feed.

The change is called Story Bumping and has already rolled out to 99% of desktop users and is still being tweaked for mobile users. The Story Bump shows you posts you may not have seen when they were first published.

For example, say you log into Facebook and scroll through your news feed to view 50 posts. The post you miss at position 51 continues to get lots of likes, comments and shares. Four hours later, you check Facebook and that post is at the top of your news feed, even though it’s four hours old.
