Facebook is changing how news appears in the feed in order to make sure that high-quality news is more visible to users. The change in the algorithm could be one of the many company’s initiatives aimed to fight the spread of fake news on the platform.
The new feed will prioritize content from trusted sources and original content. Websites that are transparent about their authors will see their content being more actively promoted.
A lot of people hugely rely on social media channels including Facebook for getting their news content. So it’s extremely important for the platform to fight misinformation and disinformation. Pushing forward content that is credible and original is one of the ways to do so.
