All was quiet on the Facebook front for some users on Tuesday afternoon. The platform notified some users that there were “no more posts” to be had and showed them nothing but a blank News Feed. Which, honestly, sounds kind of nice.
The glitch comes after Facebook announced that it will be, once again, tweaking its algorithm. This time, the company says it will be shifting gears to show users more content from their friends and less content from brands and publishers. Or, maybe, this isn’t a glitch after all. Maybe a Facebook where publishers and brands aren’t front and center is just an empty News Feed. What humans actually post things on Facebook anymore?
