Are the Newest Facebook Features Imitating Google+?
Being the king of the castle may be a great position to hold, but you may lose sight of why you’re king. You’re loved by just about everyone; even those who hate you pretend to like you. But what do you do if a prince in another castle starts to build their kingdom better than yours? Copy their ideas of course!
It seems Google+ is doing things right, causing another twist in the Google+ vs. Facebook debate. So much so, that Facebook is adopting their competitor’s ideas and features.
What the New Facebook Features Mean for Your Business Page
The newest changes made to Facebook have been getting a lot of mixed reviews from users everywhere. Facebook aims to engage its users with new features such as the ticker and the selected top stories depending on their “interests.” While the ticker shows users every move made by any of their friends throughout their network, the updated newsfeed pulls stories, posts, and photos that Facebook believes would be most valuable to you. On the Facebook blog, they compare the newsfeed to reading the first page of a newspaper; what matters most will be shown first.
