Your Facebook feed is changing. Here's how the changes will impact you

“Fake news” Facebook will list sources according to their reliability

Facebook has a solution for its pesky fake news problem, but it wants its 2 billion users to do most of the work. Ahead of the USA presidential election in 2016, Facebook was criticised for bias because its human curators of a "Trending Topics" section were only allowed to pick links from a set of sources Facebook designated as trusted, which excluded some conservative sites.

The recenet changes impact organic posts within News Feeds and do not impact paid for posts.

In a post on Facebook, the company CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained the rationale behind the decision, "The hard question we've struggled with is how to decide what news sources are broadly trusted in a world with so much division".

"Expect to see a lot more profiles featuring boobalicious 50-year-old women who love Jesus and Donald Trump to be sharing the same sort of stuff you see now", the person said.

Zuckerberg conceded there's no easy solution, saying Facebook is not comfortable with acting as judge and jury regarding what news sources are reliable and which aren't.

The state needs to fund its public schools and deliver on the promise of property tax relief, he said. His running mate, former Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver , was sworn in as lieutenant governor.

Facebook was a major source of false news stories and Russian-backed propaganda during the 2016 election season.

The initial change means that users will see less public content; dropping from making up 5% of News Feed posts, to 4%.

Facebook is changing things up in 2018 and that means big changes to your newsfeed.

Nearly certainly, the idea is going to provoke strife in the political realm, largely because conservatives, especially those on the far right, get their news from sources most other people have never heard of.

Who Is Ed Sheeran Engaged To?
The pair attended Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, and have been dating for around two-and-a-half-years. Countless newlyweds have chosen Ed Sheeran's ballad, "Thinking Out Loud", to play during their first dance.

Although its stock price dipped with the announcement, Facebook - the behemoth it is - would be unlikely to make a move that would negatively impact its long-term prospects.

The move is the latest attempt by the company to quell the spread of so-called fake news and propaganda on the network.

Facebook has announced sweeping changes to the way content will be shown on your News Feed, meaning you will see less articles and videos from publishers.

Among the winners will likely be traditional media organisations with long histories or a strong broadcast presence, such as the New York Times or BBC.

The more probable outcome is that Facebook goes back to the first two options it considered - either judging trustworthiness itself or relying on outside experts to do so. It will only shift the balance of news you see towards sources that are determined to be trusted by the community.
