"Recently we've gotten feedback from our community that public content - posts from businesses, brands and media - is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other", Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerbergwrote in a Facebook post Thursday.
Facebook is introducing a significant overhaul to its News Feed that will place a greater emphasis on posts from friends and family in the stream that users see when they log into the social network.

In many ways this is Facebook getting back to its roots, making your news feed more about what your friends are creating and thinking, rather than articles they have shared. Facebook, he said, had closely studied what kinds of posts had stressed or harmed users. It's worth noting that a lot of people were already not seeing much news in their feeds anyway. It is spending hundreds of millions on original programming and mounting a major live video push to fulfill Zuckerberg mission to turn Facebook into a "video-first" platform.
