Mark Zuckerberg made history 10 years ago when he launched Facebook News Feed. At first, people hated the change. They were used to see only what people wrote on their Wall and how many friends liked their photos. After launching the News Feed, you could see what your friends posted, who got married, what new dress has your crush bought or what new song is popular at the moment.
Most people do not remember how Facebook was before the News Feed because they were not using it at that time. Mark Zuckerberg and the people who worked on the feature expected that the update will get them more users. Unfortunately, things did not happen as they wished, at first. People did not want a change because they thought it would complicate things for them. However, the News Feed managed to be one of the best features Facebook has. Users are spending more time on this social network because it became more interesting and people manage to communicate with others, no matter where they are.
Facebook became the most popular social network in the world, with millions of people who check their profile. Moreover, News Feed helped Facebook to become as important as the news websites. If something happens, you will know it from there. The average user has more than 2000 stories he could see in a day, but we see only 200 of them.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote in his post about News Feed: “We’re constantly trying to get a better understanding of what our community finds valuable and what it doesn’t”. Many people are not able to imagine how their life would be without the News Feed. They want to know what is happening and it is easier to use the social network. Moreover, if you want to find people who have the same hobbies as you, this feature helps. It has developed in time.
You have already noticed how many things you can do just by using Facebook News Feed. Although at first, everybody thought it was a bad idea, it seems that this feature is really making our life easier. You don’t even have to watch the news, you will find out everything you want to know from Facebook. We could say that Facebook became more than just a social network, it is the easiest way to know what happens in the world.
