Facebook is once again changing up the News Feed. The company has announced that it brings two ranking updates to the algorithm that drives the News Feed. Facebook Tweaks News Feed to Focus on Close Friends and the links they’ll find most relevant.
Facebook Tweaks News Feed to Focus on Close Friends
This doesn’t mean News Feed will be limited to posts from only certain people and it doesn’t mean you will necessarily see more friend content. Rather, you will likely see posts from those you have close relationships with higher up in your News Feed.
The most recent tweaks are based on the results of surveys Facebook conducted beginning last year. The updates will happen gradually; users won’t notice a change immediately.
It seems like Facebook is quite serious making its app more reliable. On the other hand, Facebook is going to shut down Bonfire. That is a clone of the group video chat app which is known as Houseparty. It acts as a virtual hangout in a group for users. Facebook started the testing of the Bonfire in 2017. Now it has been reported that this clone app will stop working this month. However, most people are unaware of the Bonfire as Facebook never broadened its horizons.
