Facebook Inc. Research Report
On December 2, 2013, Facebook Inc. (Facebook) announced an update to News Feed ranking that recognizes relevant news and what users' friends say about it.

Facebook added that it will soon be doing a better job of distinguishing between a high-quality article on a website as compared to a meme photo hosted somewhere other than Facebook when people click on those stories on mobile. According to the Company, this will make high-quality articles shared by users and their friends show up more prominently in News Feeds. Further, Facebook said that it is looking at ways to show users additional articles similar to ones they had just read. Lastly, Facebook added that it is updating "bumping" to highlight stories with new comments.
