30.4.2021 | Facebook will ask surveys about their News Feed to users
“Facebook is still trying to figure out how to fix News Feed, and it plans to start asking users about the type of content they want to see” – according to Endgadget. Over the next few months, the company will begin surveying users about the content in their News Feeds, including whether too much political content is contributing “negative experiences.”
Facebook writes in a blog post – “Increasingly, we are hearing feedback from people that they’re seeing too much content about politics and too many other kinds of posts and comments that detract from their News Feed experience.” “We will work to better understand what kinds of content are linked with these negative experiences.”
At the same time, Mark Zuckerberg has said he wants to reduce the amount of political content in News Feed overall. “People don’t want politics and fighting to take over their experience,” Zuckerberg said in January. Separately, Facebook has already been testing ways to weed out political posts from News Feed.
