Facebook updates News Fee content policy
Facebook has made addition to the News Feed its users see. The new feed will show two additional pieces along with the present content.
The site will show the following:
- More From This Publisher, which will give people a quick snapshot of the other recent stories posted by the publisher
- Shared By Friends, which will show people any of their friends who have shared the article.
Talking about other improvement efforts, Facebook’s Taylor Hughes says, “We’re also starting a test to see whether people find it easier to evaluate the credibility of an article when we provide more information about the article’s author. People in this test will be able to tap an author’s name in Instant Articles to see additional information, including a description from the author’s Wikipedia entry, a button to follow their Page or Profile, and other recent articles they’ve published. This information will only display if the publisher has implemented author tags on their website to associate the author’s Page or Profile to the article byline, and the publisher has validated their association to the publisher. This will start as a small test in the US, and we look forward to learning from the results”.
