Washington: Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm to ensure it displays more 'high quality' content from pages that users engage with.

According to a news website, Facebook first needed to define 'high quality' content and it surveyed thousands of users on how they deemed such content, folding the responses into a new machine learning system, integrated with the master algorithm.

Over a thousand other factors including the quality of the page's other content and the level of competition on the profile are considered by the updated algorithm to determine whether a post is of high quality, the report said.

Facebook revealed it has tested the new algorithm on a small segment of users and the new algorithm will be rolled out over the next few weeks to users on both desktop and mobile, the report added.
