Facebook keeps rolling out updates and changes to its interface, including the settings of pages and profiles. Some of these changes are easy to grapple with yet some are a tad bit confusing and require a lot of understanding on the part of the user to fully understand them. George Takei, the well-known actor, recently expressed his frustration over Facebook’s changes to News Feed.

Takei was evidently frustrated when he realized that his new posts can no longer be viewed by all his fans and only limited number of fans will be able to view updates to his page.

He wrote, “FB used to allow fans to elect to see ALL posts by selecting ‘All Updates’ from the right hand corner of a post. For community pages such as this, though, FB recently decided that only certain fans will see certain posts, and it plans to ask me to pay for more fan views.”

Here, he was referring to the notion of ‘Promoted Posts’ that Facebook has recently launched, letting a person pay for a feed to make it appear more often in the fans’ feed, even when it isn’t popular enough. Takei further wrote, “I understand that FB has to make money, especially now that it is public, but in my view this development turns the notion of ‘fans’ on its head. So I encourage all friends and fans to visit my page regularly to make sure they share in all the fun.”

Interestingly, one of Facebook officials promptly responded to this, explaining to Takei that he had got the notion of Promoted Posts wrong. According to this Facebook employee, “I work at FB and even work on the product you describe, and I wanted to drop a note to say that we’ve changed NOTHING about the way page posts are delivered to fans. There is just no way to see all of the stuff happening on FB in your feed,” he added. “Fortunately, FB does a pretty good job ranking content based on the people and pages I interact with the most. So naturally, George Takei and Taco Bell are usually at the top of my feed :)”

Takei posted this response on his page so as to clear things up.
