LET’S STAY CONNECTED …. Facebook just made a significant change to its algorithms – making it harder for YOU to see pages like mine. If you want to keep seeing my page, you must change the setting (pictured below) to “SEE FIRST” instead of default.
Just put the cursor over “LIKED,” a dropdown box will appear and click “SEE FIRST.” It’s simple and takes a second. Otherwise, for thousands of you, my Global ‪#‎BizFood4Thought‬ won’t be popping up in your feed like it used to.

On the Facebook Page you’d like to continue seeing posts from, click “Following.” Of the three options, pick “See First.”

That should ensure the Page’s posts show up in your Facebook News Feed on a regular basis. You can also go to “Notifications” on a Facebook page you’ve Liked and ensure you’ll be alerted to various post types coming from that source.

Why is Facebook changing its algorithm?

“In a June press release Facebook wrote -“The goal of News Feed is to show people the stories that are most relevant to them,”

According to Facebook, the News Feed is now faced with a challenge: too much information for individuals to consume. As you already know, the posts inside an individual’s news feed aren’t in order of when they’re posted. Instead, they appear in an almost chaotic sequence, but there’s order to that sequence. Facebook algorithyms track what you like and who you interact with in numerous ways, determining what content you should and shouldn’t be seeing in your News Feed. While Facebook is constantly making little changes to this algorithms to better serve users, they are making a drastic alteration to their algorithm that may change the fundamental ways an individual’s News Feed appears.

The changes to the algorithm will bring the focus back to a user’s friends and family, taking attention away from news posted by Facebook pages. Facebook still intends to keep you informed, but its new algorithms will attempt to do so through the stories your friends share.

This means you’ll likely see fewer stories from the direct sources. Instead of reading local news from your local news station’s posts, you’ll have to depend on your friends to be posting those stories from that station.

For some, this will inevitably prove useful. If your primary reason for being on Facebook is to connect with the people that you know, this might enhance your experience. For others, this might diminish the Facebook experience. For those looking for up-to-date news straight from the source, the News Feed might become less useful.
