Links to Low-Quality Sites to Be Diminished in News Feed


In a new update rolling out over the next few months, Facebook has announced that it will bury links to low-quality sites that come from posts or even Facebook ads. Facebook defines a low-quality site as one “containing little substantive content, and that is covered in disruptive, shocking or malicious ads.” It’s possible that high-quality sites may benefit from this update with a potential increase in referral traffic. This update stems from user complaints that content in the News Feed often points them to spammy or misleading sites.
