Facebook Updates Newsfeed Algorithm: No More Click Baits & Link Sharing Must Be Done Right

Facebook Updates Its News Feed Algorithm Once Again…

Facebook has only just announced it will be making another change to its news feed algorithm.

In their strive to deliver the most interesting and relevant posts to their users they are making the following updates:

  • Reducing click-baiting headlines
  • Show shared links in the best format

Facebook Update 1: Click-Baiting

Let’s get into the click-baiting first.

Something is called a click-bait if your update is a link accompanied by a headline that tells people to ‘click to find out more’, without giving sufficient information on what the article is about.

Example post:

Facebook update 1: click bait
By using such a click bait, the poster uses the curious nature of users to get them to click the link. Results show that those links indeed tend to get a lot of clicks – which makes them appear in the newsfeed higher and more often – but in reality many of the users that clicked such a link left the article quickly and unsatisfied.
That’s why Facebook wants to weed them out, making more room in the newsfeed for articles people really want to see and read.
