Vidicom CEO, Christy Ferer, read an article about Facebook. Facebook recently came up with news feed redesign! The news feed system has moved away from manual knob-turning during the feeds early days to the systematic algorithm that determines what you see today.
Facebook gives users a “customized newspaper” by highlighting the stories it assumes users will be most interested in. The new process scores each new story and places the highest scoring stories at the top of the feed.
There are 1,500 stories per day seen on average. Facebook takes all the stories inputted and scores them based on how relevant the social network thinks it is for the user. In addition, stories are scored based on the relationship the user has with user who posted it, the number of comments, the number of shares, and the number of likes that the story has accumulated.
