FaceBook finally gets smart and plans exit from news

Good article in Medium about the long time coming shift from FaceBook.

Here is how Zuck defended the move:

“The research shows that when we use social media to connect with people we care about, it can be good for our well-being. We can feel more connected and less lonely, and that correlates with long term measures of happiness and health. On the other hand, passively reading articles or watching videos even if they’re entertaining or informative may not be as good. Based on this, we’re making a major change to how we build Facebook. I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions”.
