The home page on Facebook that displays status updates and content from people and Pages within a user’s network.
Why is the Newsfeed Important?
The Facebook Newsfeed may not show all of the posts from all of the people a user has Friended, nor all of the Pages they have liked. Facebook uses an algorithm called EdgeRank to determine which posts will appear in a user's newsfeed.
Users scroll down their newsfeed to see new posts from their network. Appearing in this space allows brand posts to capture the interest of Facebook users. Users can then Like, Comment on, or Share the brand's post, or click through to visit the Page. Photos, videos and other visual content help the brand stand out in the newsfeed.
