Facebook has renamed the main news page, the new one is called Feed
Over 15 years, Meta changed the name of a critical area within the Facebook social network. This is where users can view posts from friends, family and brands, and businesses. The company reduced the name, not changing it to “News Feed” is named “Feed” after the new one. The News Feed is most often described in the context of an “information channel” in our localization. Following the change, it is possible to call it a more simple” channel” or “channel”. It could be a better way to emphasize certain kinds of posts. Significantly, the change will not impact the user experience to any extent. The new name for the feed is designed to more accurately reflect the variety of content available on their main screens, Facebook spokesman Dami Oyefeso explained to The Verge.
In a staffed report, Meta made it clear that the News Feed title might give users an impression that the news feed was primarily a place for news posts (News) rather than content from family, friends and fan sites, as it is well-known that Facebook’s algorithms for news content are in a state of juggling. The news and shocking information are often more influential than reporting based on facts. This can be employed by politicians who use their polarizing messages to increase their influence. Meta seeks to change the name of the feed. It could suggest that Facebook isn’t solely about the news. Therefore, users should consider the content with caution or view it critically. Last February, Facebook introduced a trial that showed users fewer political posts on its main news page. The test was extended to other countries in October 2021, including over 80 nations.
This is because political opinions can cause polarization to the point that they can hinder the user experience on Facebook. Meta has determined to determine what Facebook users will react when it cuts down on the displayed content. In the words of Meta, Facebook should be an environment that connects people and not separates them. As we mentioned earlier, Meta might want to focus on eliminating the hateful remarks and blatant misinformation that affects Facebook. Changes in the style that say “let’s rename something” from the social media platform probably won’t provide a better service.
