Facebook is planning to filter the content which reach the users’ News Feed and to offer them only high-quality websites and posts. The company wants to limit the access on the feed of questionable websites, which are full of malicious ads and might work as spam. After receiving many complaints from the users, Facebook decided to roll out these improvements starting today.
Facebook wants to promote high-quality websites by listing down spam
The update is meant to keep low-quality content away from reaching the users. Starting now, the Facebook community will see fewer ads or sensational content which disturb their browsing and offer them pieces of information without value. The social media giant wanted to improve the News Feed experience and to reduce the monetization of these websites.
Facebook took the websites linked to their platform and started reviewing their content. Those which displayed an excessive quantity of disturbing or malicious apps while offering barely useful information were marked. This means that they will no longer be popping up first on the News Feed.
Keeping malicious and disruptive ads away from the News Feed
They will not be completely removed, but will no longer have priority and will show up somewhere lower in the feed. This means that most users might not even notice them. In other words, by using artificial intelligence, Facebook checks the content on the websites, and downranks them if they have spam potential.
This is great news for all the adepts of the social media platform, so there’s no surprise that users are excited to see the changes. Facebook announced that it has already started rolling them out. However, they will not reach all users at the same time. People will be able to see the improvements over the next few months.
