Facebook Changes News Feed So You Never Miss Vital Updates

See Video on Mashable “The changes, which will begin rolling out Tuesday night, are designed to keep you always up to date on the important events in your friends’ lives, even if you haven’t logged in for a few days. “Today’s updates are about not missing important updates in News Feed,” Facebook News Feed Product Manager Keith Schacht tells Mashable.”




Likes UP – all your Facebook news is now in one place

In addition to what feels like a whirlwind of changes, Facebook rolls out yet another set of updates. This time, the changes are happening on public pages.
Month end Facebook stops automatic updates.

The message reads:
Changes to How You Share Content on Your Page
We want you to connect with your fans in the most effective ways possible. That’s why as of September 30th you’ll no longer be able to automatically import posts from your website to your page notes.

The best way to get people to interact with your content is to give them insight into the links you share on your Wall by adding personal comments  (like a simple #likesup if you don’t have time to write a novel) and responding to feedback from fans.

We’re focused on creating even better tools for pages – look for announcements soon.

While Facebook may take away your right to import blog posts via RSS, the company offers a new feature. The new feature is called, “Friend Activity (1+).” Hmmm, very Google +1 like.
According to the information bubble, on this new tab “people can see how their friends are interacting with your Page on Facebook.”

When clicked, it shows what my friends are doing on this page and filters out everything else. That’s cool.

With all of these changes, the next few days should be pretty exciting. What will Google do next? What else might we see at the upcoming F8 Conference?
