Facebook moving non-promoted posts out of news feed in trial

Facebook moving non-promoted posts out of news feed in trial | 23 Oct 2017 | Facebook [FaCIAbook] is testing a major change that would shift non-promoted posts out of its news feed, a move that could be catastrophic for publishers relying on the social network for their audience. A new system being trialled in six countries...sees almost all non-promoted posts shifted over to a secondary feed, leaving the main feed focused entirely on original content from friends, and adverts. The change has seen users' engagement with Facebook pages drop precipitously, from 60% to 80%. If replicated more broadly, such a change would destroy many smaller publishers, as well as larger ones with an outsized reliance on social media referrals for visitors...In a second statement issued after this article was published, Facebook added: "We have no current plans to roll this out globally."

Vega, 99, was one of 14 deceased residents of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills where the central air conditioning failed during Hurricane Irma. Carmen Fernandez, the wife of Vega's cousin, said she went to the bank to close Vega's account only to learn there was no money in it. Instead, there was an automatic payment of $958 to Hollywood Hills that resulted in an overdraft fee. The shock of it was magnified by the fact that the payment was posted on Oct. 10, the day Vega would have become a centenarian had she not perished in the stifling nursing home..."I was enraged. They let her die and then they bill her," she said.
