Facebook Personalized Newsfeed

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 1.32.22 PM

I was asked to take a survey on Facebook yesterday to improve, or personalize, my Newsfeed (I spell newsfeed as one word because I like it and I think Facebook will catch on).

It looks as though its part of Facebook’s plan to fine-tune our Newsfeed content. This time, maybe, for the better.

“I want to see more posts like this on Facebook.” Users are asked if they: Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neither, Agree or Strongly Agree.

Upon completing the initial 10, users can either exit or continue voting to further customize their Facebook experience.

Klout adds “What to Post” suggestions

Klout, a measuring stick for a user’s online influence, has added a feature  to help users increase their Klout score.

Klout Labs has rolled out “What to Post,” which appears to suggest topics based on each user’s social media strengths and Klout topics, in addition to sponsored content.

Users can then push this suggested content out onto their networks, in hopes that it will engage their friends, which would in turn increase a Klout score (a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 behind the most influential).

Klout is experimenting with tools to help you find the right things to post at the right time. Post from Klout to measure the impact of what you share.
