News Feed Updates (1)

Facebook Now Considers ‘Time Spent Viewing’ on Articles

The news feed algorithm used to just consider interactions such as shares, likes, and clicks. But as the algorithm advances it takes more and more inputs.

With this new update the algorithm now also looks at how long time a person looks at an article.

The idea is that the more time you spend on an article, the more interested you are. And Facebook will then try to show similar articles to you – and show the article you are reading to people who have same interests as you.

For page admins this means: Make your content interesting. This is not something new so if you are already following a good page strategy then you don’t have to change anything.
