FACEBOOK is apparently indulging in SELECTIVE PROFILING
Fighting this Facebook algorithm change, because I have noticed that I haven't been seeing so many of my friends’ posts😐
Here’s how to avoid hearing from the same 26 FB friends and nobody else. This post explains why we don't see all posts from our friends. Funny, thought if I followed you on Facebook I would see what you post. Not anymore
Your Newsfeed recently shows only posts from the same few people, about 25, repeatedly the same, because Facebook has a new algorithm.
Their system chooses the people who will read your post. However, I would like to choose for myself, Therefore, I ask you all a favor - If you are reading this message leave me a quick comment, a "hello", a sticker, whatever you want, so you will appear in my news feed‼️
Otherwise Facebook chooses who to show me and I don't need facebook to choose my friends!
Do not hesitate to copy and paste on your wall so you can have more interaction with all your contacts and bypass the system. That's why we don't see all posts from our friends.😮
Thanks for the heads up from those who already copied and pasted the above. Hold your finger down anywhere in this post and "copy" will pop up. Click "copy". Then go your page, start a new post on your page, then put your finger anywhere in the blank field. "Paste" will pop up and click paste. wooo hooo, you've just copied and pasted!!
😬I was wondering why my news feed felt so different lately… Just found out, Facebook has another new algorithm. 🙄 It seems like I only see the same small handful of my friends on my newsfeed anymore (whom I love)… so I’m doing a simple check, with your help! 🙌🏽💖
Can everybody do me a quick favor, pretty please?? 🙏🏼
If you’re seeing this, leave me a comment – just a quick “Hey” or your favorite emoji would be great. The more interaction you have with people, the more friends will show up on your feed.
Otherwise Facebook CHOOSES who you see.
The following post is circulating among my friends on Facebook. Is it true?
** 🌈Important ** Once you comment, you are welcome to turn OFF notifications for this post so you don’t see all the comments after you.
❤️Thank You!! I really appreciate it because I want to see as many of you as possible, and know what’s going on in all my friend’s lives! ✨🤸🏻♂️🎉
Feel free to copy and paste to your own wall so you can have more interaction as well!
Excited to see more about YOUR life again 😍
Facts Check Analysis: Facebook knows everything of you. It knows when is your birthday, who are your friends, what you like, what you dislike, what you share, who are your family members and all, even which you may not imagine or have forgotten. There are many more data is getting assembled on the facebook even when we are writing this data.
This rumor started from December 2017, about the change of algorithm which restricts feed to upto limited friends. The content has been shared across by people across the world. It might not be True, it might be false. Yet no one knows what is the real algorithm used by facebook to show your post to the number of people. So this cannot be confirmed, although now a day’s most of the posts have limited reach, until you are affiliated to some facebook group or have not paid promoted your pages it will be shown to limited number of people. There are posts even which have millions of page views on the Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg said “Facebook was built to bring people closer together and build relationships. One of the ways we do this is by connecting people to meaningful posts from their friends and family in News Feed.”
He says further, Recently we've gotten feedback from our community that public content -- posts from businesses, brands and media -- is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.
So there are chances Facebook in order to stop the media or brand content facebook might be stopping some of the feeds reaching to another person. If it thinks the feed has been used for marketing purpose it might stop from many reach like earliar.
What more we can deduce from the above post
Yes. People who want to see more posts from Pages they follow can choose See First in News Feed Preferences to make sure they always see posts from their favorite Pages. Page posts that generate conversation between people will show higher in News Feed. For example, live videos often lead to discussion among viewers on Facebook – in fact, live videos on average get six times as many interactions as regular videos.
All this are just assumption as no one knows how the actual algorithm of facebook works, that is the reason we have kept the news in fake category.
