Facing critics, Facebook wants feeds to be more ‘meaningful’

Facing critics, Facebook wants feeds to be more ‘meaningful’



2018-01-12T17:00:00+0000

Facebook is tweaking what people see to make their time more “meaningful” in a move that could hurt news organizations that rely on it to spread content.

The latest move represents a major shift, one intended to highlight the posts users are most likely to engage with rather than passively consume.

SKY 4 is headed to Frisco HS for a school walkout. Students across the country are protesting today to mark the anniversary of the Columbine HS massacre. Events at Keller HS were canceled because of a threat. Read more: bit.ly/2HO74uZ

It’s been how many years since the school shooting and now you little shits care? No. No you don’t care. You want to leave class. And the admin allow it.

Shameful...do something positive ! Have a BBQ tomorrow at school and talk to the nerdy kids that everyone ignores...raise money for a good cause....get back to class!

I have 2 kids jr and sr at AHS, I promise you they don’t care, they just want a reason to miss class.

Get back to class, you’re all dumb enough as it is. Open a book a read it, stop believing everything the liberal school officials are telling you.

Kids learn from their parents! So parents make a difference and show them respect for our country , the police and most of all our God!

Imagine that, students paying respect on the anniversary of the Columbine shooting. They are not protesting. Apparently some adults need to learn respect.

Protest the bullying make a friend stop making fun of the one kid you don't understand and get to understand them show them you care!!

Learn to be stupid and the world will burn in flames. No education and no country. Our future is bleak with students just walking out of school. I try that at work and guess what happens...

They should get 0's for all assignments today and no make up work. Let them realize after dropping there grades.

Basically the school is saying let's educate these kids to be cry baby's. Most those kids are only following because they seen a way to get out of class. Smh

This parent totally supports the protests and gun control. Peaceful protests go back many years. - sit ins in the 60s!

Do any of them know why they are walking out? Lol. Seems like we did this in high school for not allowing our hair to be over our ears! All went back to class and then to the barber!

Another pointless walk out. Totally shocked it’s on a Friday...lol great excuse to just roll out of school all day.

I’m sure your kids Do In fact care about the possibility of someone shooting up their school. I know kids who have anxiety from all the school shootings.

Let's protest to have our rights taken away! I would have taken part in any protest when I was in school just to get me out of class.

They couldn’t even begin to tell you about domestic terrosim and gun laws. They don’t even know where Colombians high school was smdh

Scott, you need to realize that we’re sick and tired of mass shootings in this nation. The 2nd amendment needs to be changed to better reflect that.

This is stuoed and guarantee 95% of these students dont wvwn k ow what they are doing. Totally set up by school admin.

Oh but they can bully and not think twice about it. These kids today!!! Just an excuse to get out of class. So ridiculous!!

How about the kids make time up for walking out of class to protest. As long as they are out of class they have to make the time up after school.

Discipline for showing respect? Really? As a parent, I would fight the school district for that. Discipline for disrespect but not for respecting the lives of others.

Looks like the kids run the schools. I want to see a walk out to protest texting and driving. Protest against abortion. A protest against drugs.

They need to get back to class with their parent paid iPhone,car,money,food and clothes and learn about the real world before they try to change it!

Stupidity, they need to be in school learning something. Why don't we have major discussions about mental health solutions, this is the culprit.

Big Bend is definitely on my bucket list for hiking and stargazing. What time of the year is best to visit?

Mike's workshops are worth the cost in the knowledge and experience you gain. I did one of his Fort Griffin workshops last year and it was one of the best nights ever.

I love photographing the night skies in big bend...so much fun. Last time I got a shot of the zodiacal light😀
