I’ve seen a couple people post a message that basically says, “Copy this is you’re reading my status updates, so I can see who’s really paying attention to me.”
I’ve also seen people disturbed that more people don’t respond to their updates.
I thought I’d post this note to clarify some things.
First, here is the little-known Facebook NewsFeed fact:
No one sees everyone of their friends updates. Facebook has a algorithm that decides what ones to show – especially for people who have hundreds of friends.
You shouldn’t be. It makes sense.
In an article called, “EdgeRank: The Secret Sauce That Makes Facebook’s News Feed Tick” http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/22/facebook-edgerank/
It says, “You may not realize it, but News Feed only displays a subset of the stories generated by your friends — if it displayed everything, there’s a good chance you’d be overwhelmed.”
