Facebook has reconfigured their algorithms, significantly changing the way content is ranked in users’ news feeds. The social media giant’s recent announcement that it will be prioritizing content from friends and family has left many brands wondering how they can still effectively reach their followers.
Mark Zuckerberg explains what prompted the change:
“We built Facebook to help people stay connected and bring us closer together with the people that matter to us. That’s why we’ve always put friends and family at the core of the experience. Research shows that strengthening our relationships improves our well-being and happiness.”
This means it’s time to evaluate your digital marketing strategy.
