Here’s Why Facebook Is Testing A Designated Space For Publisher Content

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 25, 2017

This article from Social Media Week analyzes the news that Facebook is testing a separate feed for news content (see this Guardian story about that: https://socialmedia.mayoclinic.org/link/facebook-moving-non-promoted-posts-out-of-news-feed-in-trial-1/).

How is Facebook explaining this trial?

Facebook’s Head of News Feed, Adam Mosseri, says it’s designed “’to understand if people prefer to have separate places for personal and public content,’ with no intention of pursuing the idea further until more feedback is gathered. He also outlined the differences between the Explore feature officially rolled out as of last Wednesday, and the feed that is being tested for publishers.”
