What Exactly Changed? The changes announced by Facebook direct more posts from “friends” to your news feed and less posts from the pages you follow. As a result, users are seeing more personal posts from friends and less articles from alternative news pages (as well as less business posts, advertising etc.) By choosing the ‘get notification’ and ‘see first’ settings on our page, it lets Facebook know to notify you of our posts, and bypasses the new default algorithm.
The changes also reduced how many of your comments and ‘likes’ are shared with your friends, instead tending toward notifying your friends of posts you actively share. So if you want to spread our posts around Facebook, be sure to press the ‘share’ button. You’ll reach more of your friends that way.
