Re: Like or dislike?
In the past year or so, I've subscribed to a number of news pages on Facebook and do use it -- particularly in the morning -- to catch up. Though I do agree with Lorna: I always use the "newest first" option when I sort my news feed and don't care all that much about resurfacing old posts and conversations.

Just leave the feed alone already
Why can't FB just let people sort the way they want? I like to see all posts in order -- not priroritizing a post from last week because it has a lot of comments. If you want to keep tabs on a commenting war, that's what updates are for. Others like the popular view. The more FB futzes with newsfeeds and removes control, the more I like Google+.

OK, not really, but it's annoying. And annoying your customers is rarely a good plan.

Re: Like or dislike?
I use Facebook for keeping up with far-flung family. But as such, I don't see it as a serious source of information. In fact, I seldom look at it for anything job-related.

Like or dislike?
Readers: Are you in favor of the tweaks Facebook is making to its News Feed algorithm? Are you happy or dissatisfied with Facebook resurfacing popular posts and suggesting more news stories over other posts?
