The End of the Social News Era? Journalists Brace for Facebook’s Big Change - The New York Times
“Facebook is breaking up with news.” “Because space in News Feed is limited, showing more posts from friends and family and updates that spark conversation means we’ll show less public content, including videos and other posts from publishers,” Adam Mosseri, the head of Facebook’s News Feed, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

How Lazy Evaluation Works in Haskell - HackHands
To avoid this unnecessary duplication, we use a method called graph reduction. Every expression can be represented as a graph. Our example is represented as follows

Every block corresponds to a function application. The function name is written in the white part, and the grey parts point to the function arguments. This graphical notation resembles the way that the compiler actually represents expressions with pointers in memory.

Every function defined by the programmer corresponds to a reduction rule

New Facebook algorithm update attempts to quell “engagement bait” posts | Ars Technica
Posts that only want your clicks won't appear as often on news feeds any more.
Facebook news feeds can get pretty cluttered, especially with clickbait posts fishing for as many likes, shares, and comments as possible. But it appears that enough users have complained to Facebook about these posts that the social media platform will start cracking down on what it is calling "engagement bait." In a Facebook blog post, the company explains it will demote engagement bait posts and pages starting this week.
The company defines engagement bait posts as any that encourage interaction to "artificially boost engagement" and glean more reach on the site—posts that say, "Like this post if you're an Aries or Love this if you're a Leo," and other spam-like messages. Facebook has reviewed and categorized thousands of posts like this so it could update its news feed algorithm to identify engagement bait posts and demote them on your news feed.

Facebook drastically changes News Feed to make it “good for people” (and bad for most publishers) » Nieman Journalism Lab
News publishers that have relied on Facebook for traffic will suffer.
Facebook is making big, immediate changes to News Feed. The company will now prioritize content from friends, family, and groups over “public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post Thursday night. News publishers that have relied on Facebook for traffic will suffer: “Some news helps start conversations on important issues,” Zuckerberg wrote. “But too often today, watching video, reading news or getting a page update is just a passive experience.”
The change, Facebook admits, is major. Users will be given “more opportunities to interact with the people they care about,” which necessarily means less publisher content, Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s VP of News Feed, wrote in a post Thursday...

Facebook takes a step to fix itself. Is it enough? – World Wide Web Foundation
Facebook began 2018 with an acknowledgement and a resolution. An acknowledgement that it has substantial problems — from hate and abuse to foreign government propaganda — and a resolution from founder Mark Zuckerberg to fix the platform.
Zuckerberg has now announced ‘major changes’ to the algorithms that drive Facebook’s News Feed. The updates, he says, will reduce the number of posts users see from brands and media and prioritise posts from friends and family. Instead of focussing on maximising user engagement, Facebook says it will promote content that “sparks conversations and meaningful interactions between people”.
The announcement comes after Facebook has suffered months of intense criticism — from users and governments — on hate speech, misinformation and the use of allegedly biased algorithms.
