Facebook is making some changes, so that users get a better look at the posts that matter to them most.

The social media giant says it plans to change its news feed algorithm so content posted by the friends and family of users would be favoured.

The side effect of those changes is content posted by publishers will show up less, meaning less significantly less traffic to the hundreds of news media sites that have come to rely on Facebook.

However, you can get Facebook to prioritise your Liked pages by selecting the 'See First' option under the page's news feed settings.
