New “Family Focused” Facebook feed

Facebook announced a major update on the 11th of January that will put friends and family above pages or celebrities in a user’s news feed — and likely result in people spending less time on the leading social network..or not? The change to the way Facebook ranks posts will put more weight on social interactions and relationships, according to News Feed product manager John Hegeman. “This is a big change,” Hegeman was quoted saying..”People will actually spend less time on Facebook, but we feel good about that because it will make the time they do spend more valuable, and be good for our business in the end. We think people interaction is more important than passively consuming content,” Hegeman said. “This will be one of the more important updates that we have made.” Facebook co-founder and chief Mark Zuckerberg has noted numerous times that bringing people together and strengthening communities…

We start the New Year with some interesting news coming from..yeah, you guessed it right. Facebook ! An very exciting social media development – that may have slipped under your festive radar – occurred a couple of weeks back. The increased monetisation of Whatsapp. What does that mean? Well, simplified,  Facebook has introduced a ‘contact us via Whatsapp’ button to sponsored organic Facebook posts. This will move your conversation to a company Whatsapp account (yes you need to create a Company Whatsapp, you can contact ours on +44 (0)7502449127) and helps Facebook bring Whatsapp a little closer to the larger Facebook family which include Instagram, Oculus, Ascenta and ProtoGeo. We’re predicting that it will begin to appear in Instagram ads in the close future too. Facebook has bought messaging app WhatsApp in a deal worth a total of $19bn (£11.4bn) in cash and shares. It is the social networking giant’s biggest acquisition to…

Instagram adds Recommended posts to your feed

Instagram’s feed will now show users recommended posts – a change that earlier this month was spotted while in testing, and has since quietly gone live. The feature, described here in the company’s Help documentation, will suggest posts for you based on those that have been liked by other accounts you follow.The new section, “Recommended for You, is clearly labeled as such to avoid any confusion with your own home feed. This is not the first time Instagram has attempted to insert a feed for recommended posts or content. However, it is different from the previous ones ever seen. In the past, you had to go to Explore section to check recommended content. Moreover, you could choose to see which posts your friends had been liking in the Following section and so forth. This new feature however is slightly different and now also available for both Android and iOS as well. However, it…
