Facebook Feed Getting Simpler With New Mom-Block Feature
San Francisco, CA -- Facebook announced Thursday plans to give its news feed a facelift, introducing sweeping changes to algorithms and content filters behind-the-scenes which will now show you less hourly posts from your mother and more stuff that you actually care about.
Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg says it means fewer pictures of your cousins from 2005 and greater presence from friends you actually need to keep up with.
“You already know what your mother is up to with the frequent texts, emails, phone calls, relayed messages and visits, so we don’t think you need her presence in your life on Facebook,” an exasperated Zuckerberg was able to spit out before getting back on the line with his mother.
Zuckerberg has still been unavailable for further comment as he is now sitting at his desk in a hunched position with his back turned to us on the same phone call.
