Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), a social media giant, has introduced a new feature called See First to improve the experience of readers. It is an innovative feature that allows users to get what they want after they log in.
You just need to order what you would like to read. The new engine quickly searches the newsfeeds considering your friends circle, and how much time you spend to watch a video. It will help to populate the screen with top-notch news according to your preference when you just open a Facebook page every time.
It is following the strategy that if people have to scroll out a number of pages for an item, they are likely to steer away. It is actually the way Facebook makes money by displaying ads as you scroll through the pages. But, the users are likely to get distracted and will have less appetite to return to Facebook.
In its new strategy, Facebook will not show any ads on the see first results. The company is hoping that it will improve the experience for the users and will see them return back every day for their favorite news. This way, it intends to retain the user base.
You can also tell the Facebook about your likes and dislikes. But, it doesn’t guarantee the results. It still needs to put in considerable efforts to update the algorithms to show the intended results.
The company has spent several years experimenting with this innovative feature before actually rolling out. The See First Option should help you with what you need. It will greatly influence the business of Facebook.
You will be pleased to see all the stuff when you just login to your Facebook account. You need not hunt scrolling through several pages. It saves your valuable time.
According to an interview with Re/Code, the company is of the view that the users will get tired if they need to scroll through a lot of pages for searching what they want. They may not return next time. But, if they are provided with the news and other important stuff, they will definitely visit the Facebook again.
Facebook will roll out See First Option for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS with an update on Thursday. It will introduce the new feature for the web and Android in the days to come.
The new option allows the users to prioritize the interested pages and friends list. You will get more control over the news feeds. You can activate this feature in the Facebook preferences option for newsfeed of iPhone.
