Facebook has made news less of a priority on its platform, but there are things you can do to stay connected to Idaho Education News.
Meta, Facebook’s parent company, has shifted resources away from its news products to support “more creative initiatives,” the Wall Street Journal reported last summer. You’ve likely seen some of those changes, including a bigger emphasis on videos, or “Reels,” in your news feed. The platform also no longer plans to pay publishers for their content to run on Facebook’s News Tab, according to Axios.
Other changes include a Feeds Tab that allows readers to filter posts from friends, groups you designate as “favorites” and other people and groups.
As the platform places less of an emphasis on news, here’s how to stay connected with us:
- If you haven’t liked our Facebook page, do that now. On our Facebook page, click the “Liked” tab near the top and select “Favorites” and then select “Update.” This will keep us higher in your newsfeed.
- On your mobile Facebook app, select the “Feeds” tab at the bottom of your screen. Then select “Favorites” near the top of your screen. Select “Get Started” and “Set Up Favorites.” Search for Idaho Education News and select “add” make sure we’re one of your favorites.
