Once again, on Thursday Facebook announced more tweaks to the news feed in an effort to "bring people together and build relationships."

According to a news release, the gist of the change is making sure your time on Facebook is seeing stuff you want to see such as posts from family and friends.

A larger emphasis will be given to those that share posts while shuffling public posts down such as businesses.

If you are curious how the algorithm currently works, reactions, comments and shares determine how high posts show up in your news feed.

The news release explains the update will prioritize posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people.

With this change posts from The Post-Star may not make the cut if you are used to regularly seeing them. One thing that will remain the same is the ability to view pages you follow first.

To continue to see posts from The Post-Star as a priority in your news feed visit, www.facebook.com/ThePostStar. If you do not already "like" the page, that is the first step.

Once you have done so, click "Follow" and choose "See First." This will keep The Post-Star as a priority and keep you informed of the latest happenings that you care about.
