Facebook Inc., seeking to calm creators of articles and video after announcing a change in how their work will be promoted in its news feed, sent an email pledging to help them adapt. Stories and clips that draw comments and likes or are shared by users are more likely to be seen, Facebook said in the email obtained by Bloomberg. The company will also continue to prioritize content that users search for or return regularly to view, such as weekly video series. \u201cWe know even a small update to News Feed can be disruptive to you and your talent\u2019s businesses, and this change will take some time to figure out,\u201d the social network said. \u201cAs we take this journey together and focus on content that our community can connect around, we\u2019ll work on providing you and your clients with best practices, insights, and tools to help them understand and create content that promotes these meaningful interactions on Facebook.\u201d Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday he\u2019s making changes because feedback has shown that public content has been \u201ccrowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.\u201d He vowed last week to \u201cfix\u201d the social network after a year that saw Facebook come under sharp criticism for contributing to a climate of extreme political polarization, the distribution of fake news and escalating privacy concerns. Both traditional and online news organizations have come to count on Facebook as a source of revenue and readers. The social network drives about 17 percent of the visits to the websites of companies participating in Digital Content Next, a group that represents publishers including Bloomberg News, CNBC, 21st Century Fox Inc. and Al Jazeera, said Jason Kint, CEO of the organization.
