Social Media Today: Facebook News Feed Changes, Teen Problem, App Update
By Melony Roy
More changes in the News Feed
Facebook has changed its News Feed algorithm again, this time to reflect video usage.
It will now take into consideration how long a user has watched a video, in addition to number of views, likes, comments and shares.
People who watch more videos will see more in the future, and those who scroll past videos will likely see fewer.
What teen problem?
It turns out Facebook may not have a teen problem after all.
Forrester Research surveyed more than 4,500 teens about their social media habits and found that Facebook is the most popular.
More than three-quarters of teens online use Facebook, twice as many as use Pinterest, Tumblr or Snapchat.
Facebook’s updates app
Facebook has updated its Pages Manager app.
The app now features quicker navigation to your brand page activity and insights, as well as more direct access to its action bar.
