Facebook just made another change to the News Feed algorithm and this time they’re being upfront about the fact that it may (will) cause another drop in Page engagement. Points for honesty?
This update is all about the trending post. The average person often posts about TV shows and movies and news when it’s a breaking story. You’ll see a lot of this over the next few weeks as the TV networks roll out their new season. Oh look, Kristen Wiig is trending. . . .
Under the new rules this post will show up higher in your news feed than that random post from your mother. If Caroline were to post this same update two weeks from now, it wouldn’t rise to the top because it’s old news – sorry Kristen – you only get a few moments in the Facebook sun from now on.
