Facebook has been modifying its platform every few weeks. We have compiled three of the potential updates that will be hitting your feed soon.

News Feed Algorithm

Facebook conducted surveys asking users what content they want to see in their news feed. Based on the surveys, Facebook will rank stories higher in a news feed if a user has rated that content higher and therefore has a greater chance to interact with it.

Live Streaming

This feature allows people to broadcast a live stream in which others can comment. Afterwards, users have the option to save and share the video to their timeline. This feature will be rolling out in the next few weeks.

Multiple-Interest Based News Feeds

This change to the news feed enables users to view focused feeds on topics such as travel, style, or news headlines. This feature will only be available via the mobile app and is currently being tested.
