Facebook to bring more posts from related pages into News Feed

4

In a similar move to trending posts, Facebook will bring more posts related to pages users have liked into the News Feed. For instance, if a page you haven’t like tags a page you have, that post could appear in your News Feed.

Facebook Product Manager Andrew Song explained this in a blog post:

When we tested adding this feature for Pages we found that people liked seeing this type of content in their News Feeds and gave these stories high scores in surveys.

We look at many factors to make sure the most relevant stories appear in News Feed, including which posts are getting the most engagement (such as likes, comments, shares and clicks) across all of Facebook. We also consider which posts are getting the most engagement from people who like both the Page that posted and the Page that was tagged.

For example, if many people who like Dwight Howard also like the Bleacher Report, it suggests that these two Pages are connected. If we see that people who like both the Bleacher Report and Dwight Howard are liking the post above, that’s an indication that it may be relevant for people who only like Dwight Howard.
