A viral message has hit social media claiming that the new algorithm of Facebook has restricted the number of people whose posts will appear on your Facebook News Feed.
The message says that the algorithm selects some 25 people who can see your post and only their posts will appear on your feeds.
It reads, ” Thanks for the tips to bypass FB. WORKS!! I have a whole new news feed. I’m seeing posts from people I haven’t seen in years.
Here’s how to bypass the system FB now has in place that limits posts on your news feed.
Their new algorithm chooses the same few people – about 25 – who will read your posts. Hold your finger down anywhere in this post, “copy” will pop. Click “copy”. Go your page, start a new post, click paste.
This will bypass the system.
Worth a try !”
