Facebook Says It Will Prioritize Posts from Friends

Responding to user feedback, Facebook plans to change how it ranks posts that appear in the news feed. Facebook says items posted by family and friends will be ranked higher than other content and thus should appear higher up in the news feed. Facebook explained how it approaches the news feed with a system of values. For example, friends and family come first. Facebook also wants the news feed to inform and to entertain — things its research says people want. At the same time, Facebook believes the news feed should be a platform for all ideas that generates engaging conversations while still leaving users in control. "Our top priority is keeping you connected to the people, places and things you want to be connected to — starting with the people you are friends with on Facebook," said the company in a blog post. The latest iteration to the news feed will roll out to all users over the coming weeks.

Thanks

for forgetting there are some of us who don't have time to look at our newsfeed every single minute of the day and would love to see things in chronological order so when we do have time, we get to see all the posts on our newsfeed, not just the ones you think are important.
But then you might miss an ad. Can't have that, can we?
...
I think you, me, and almost everyone would prefer to go back to that style; however, FaceBook in their infinite wisdom seems to think this is better and very reluctant to ever change back.
