Zuckerberg explains that since businesses, brands, and public pages post far more content than friends and family usually do, it's understandable why Facebook has come to show more public content than personal one. Over the next few months, we'll be making updates to ranking so people have more opportunities to interact with the people they care about. "But I also expect the time you do spend on Facebook will be more valuable".
This is the phenomenon where people stop sharing as much information about their personal lives on Facebook, yielding less useful data for the advertisers on whom Facebook relies to make its money.

However, despite the improvements made by Facebook creator Mark Zuckenberg, technology and social media experts say that if the upcoming changes are implemented, the popularity of news, videos and photos by companies and the media will be greatly reduced, and may reduce the spread of fake news and misinformation.

However, during that time, Facebook's unique audience has continued to grow.
Facebook will soon give more weight to posts from friends, family members, and those that spur conversation.
An analysis from the Press Association found that the clickbait crackdown has already resulted in decreased engagement for news publishers. "There is a desire to make sure people feel value when they go there", said Kieley Taylor, managing partner and global head of social at Group M.
