For the first time in 15 years, Facebook has changed the name of its News Feed. The change will not affect interaction with the main interface of the social network. But a more accurate title should better represent the variety of content users see in their feeds.
In a mailing to employees, Facebook explained the reasons for the name change.
per a memo to Facebook employees described to me, the company said it’s dropping “news” from “news feed” because “news” led people to think there would be news stories but not necessarily posts by friends— Alex Heath (@alexeheath) February 15, 2022
(rationale makes sense, but like, the News Feed is a 16-year-old product)
