The company has been criticized for what it's showing to its users as some of the content can negatively affect millions of users.

Oh, the researcher at Korea Press Foundation, said it was too early to say whether the latest measure would reinforce Facebook's "filter bubble" effect or not.

While Mark Zuckerberg has taken a personal financial hit, it is thought that the changes will increase Facebook's commercial value in the long run. "But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable". The hope is that posts by people over companies will foster community, commenting, sharing and interaction.

With this update, we will also prioritize posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people.

Many of these businesses will be affected by the new measure.

His resolution for 2018 was to "fix" Facebook, according to the South China Morning Post. But is he throwing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater?

What does this mean for Pages and public content? He also stated that the company started making changes in this direction previous year. BuzzFeed News, which built its distribution largely through Facebook, already reacted to the algorithm change Thursday with a Facebook ad prompting users to download the BuzzFeed app before news disappears from the feed. Downplaying those posts from brands and businesses may put revenue at risk, said James Cakmak, an analyst at Monness Crespi Hardt & Co.
