The first algorithm is designed to determinepriority of friends of the user, and the second - for the most relevant links. The changes are based on Facebook surveys last year. As the company said, updates will occur gradually and users will not even notice them immediately.

This does not mean that the news feed will be limited to the publication of only certain people. Just posts the most interesting pages will be higher in the news feed.

Facebook will also change the look of links, based onsurveys that were conducted back in April. Users were asked to describe which links they find most interesting. According to the results of these polls, Facebook was able to determine what exactly made the link useful.
