Instagram made a big move. What’s the official motive behind testing a social media world with no “likes”? The CEO of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, stated in the announcement that the test in the U.S. and Canada was “about creating a less pressurized environment, where people feel comfortable expressing themselves."
Facebook prioritized content from users’ friends and family in its January announcement of a News Feed change. This algorithm alteration appears to have usurped a previous priority of the social media giant — when it paid publishers and influencers millions to create original Facebook Live content. Facebook Watch seems to reign now.
Facebook users are fed up with being served clickbait. So says Adam Mosseri — VP, Product Management, News Feed — to The Washington Post.
Marketers, your organic reach will drop again on Facebook. Pages, specifically, will see posts appear lower in the News Feed, unless the posts inform or entertain many of the more than 1 billion users of the social media network.
