Facebook was designed as a way for people to connect with each other, such as classmates in college, which was later expanded to cover people from high school, friends at work, people you’ve just met, and so on. However in recent times, it’s starting to feel like the original intention behind Facebook is getting lost, but that’s something Facebook wants to change.

In an announcement by Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the company is looking to change its News Feed to make it where you will see more posts from friends and family. According to Zuckerberg, “The first changes you’ll see will be in News Feed, where you can expect to see more from your friends, family and groups.”

He adds, “As we roll this out, you’ll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media. And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard — it should encourage meaningful interactions between people.” Zuckerberg also acknowledges that these changes could result in people spending less time on Facebook.

However he believes that your time spent on Facebook will be more valuable instead, and that ultimately this is better for the business over the long-term, which we guess we’ll have to wait and see.
