Facebook announces drastic changes to news feed

Facebook has announced plans to revamp its news feed to show more content from friends and families.

The company is altering its algorithm to prioritise “meaningful” posts from friends and family members rather than brands and publishers.

The changes are intended to allow people to see posts that they "care about" and want to interact with, CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed.

The move comes as Facebook faces criticism that social media can make people feel depressed and isolated.
