Facebook Updates News Feed (Again)

NCE Social Media

Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm again. It means that they want more people to know what is going on around them…and by pushing more stories with the most comments, the most shares, and the most likes to the top of your feed, they believe you will want to see that story. Personally, I don’t like the News Feed default and prefer the All Friends feed. Which feed do you prefer? What does this mean for you?

To anyone who experienced craziness from my new Feedblitz feed, I am so sorry. I have reverted to my boring old Blogger feed with no bells and whistles. And whatever you do, DO NOT switch your own feeds to Feedblitz!! I suspect they got a massive influx of new feeds after the widely discussed Feedburner problems and they didn't plan for it so their servers have completely lost the plot.
