    Yet another move to force businesses and webmasters to boost their posts and pay for ads instead of organically reaching fans in their platform. And all of this is disguised perfectly as "family and friends come first".

    And still facebook wont implement a simple keyword filter into their newsfeed that would allow users to hide all content containing any keywords the user wants.

    If I could block things like "football" "babies" & "brexit" then my newsfeed would be emptied of about 50% junk. Allowing space for things that actually interest me that are not necessarily hosted on facebooks own platform.

    Right now its only possible with 3rd party browser extensions. Which are great except i only browse my personal fb on my phone while im taking a shit...

    It's only going to make a difference to those who spam shitty links which offer no value to their users or get no page engagement. Content which generates likes and shares will benefit from this change, not to mention people will always scroll down their news feed, if your content is good enough people will click it anyway.

    Not a surprise at all, Facebook will continue to push us into ads.
    As someone has already said above, the key will be to generate good and appealing content that brings engagement, the likes and shares will help us to bypass the new restrictions and keep our organic reach at good levels, at least until new restrictions are made, something I believe will keep happening.
