Facebook adjusts News Feed to feature more high quality content
Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm to ensure it displays more `high quality` content from pages that users engage with.
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.
