THOUGHTS ON THE FACEBOOK NEWS FEED.

  • A completely unfiltered News Feed where anything that anyone you follow or are friends with shows up chronologically
  • A pages News Feed — which only has posts from the pages and groups you follow not ordered by Facebook’s AI but everything posted by chronologically as the pages.
  • A friends News Feed — which only has posts from friends. Again not selected or ordered by Facebook but posts show up in this feed chronologically as people post them.
  • A favorites News Feed — which allows you to select friends, groups and pages as favourites and shows all posts from them as those are posted. Or as my open-source loving, Linus fan, software programmer brother calls it — a custom News Feed that you can curate yourself.
  • A Facebook controlled News Feed — which is the page that is generated through Facebook’s algorithms. And Facebook can give it a cool marketing name like Recommendations, Trending or you know Taurus!
