Facebook is continuously looking for new ways to improve the end user experience, especially when it comes to the heart of the platform, the news feed. This week, Facebook announced that they are implementing new logic to the news feed that will reduce the visibility of link posts that point users to low-quality web page experiences. This type of change should sound very familiar to any SEO marketer, as it is quite similar to how Google approaches ranking webpages within their search engine.
If you predicted that Facebook would eventually adopt “stories” to their platform you were correct – and that prediction felt inevitable. Following suit with Instagram who released stories to their platform in 2016 – Facebook has updated their mobile application to now allow users the ability to post pictures and videos in a separate feed for their followers to view.
