Copy Paste Message to Bypass Facebook News Feed Limit

Story:

The new Facebook News Feed algorithm limits the number of posts you see.
Thanks for the tip to circumvent Facebook…It Works ! Now i have a whole new profile. I see posts from people I didn’t see anymore. Facebook’s new algorithm picks the same people, around 25 who will see your posts. Hold your finger anywhere in this post and click “copy”. Go to your page where it says “What’s on your mind”. Tap your finger anywhere in the empty field. Click paste. This is going to circumvent the system.
If you are reading this message, do me a favor and leave me a quick comment…a “hello,” a sticker, whatever you want, so you will appear in my newsfeeds the empty field. Click paste. This is going to circumvent the system.
Hello new and old friends!Hello
Drop a single hello, thanks!

Other Versions

1. Hello Friends – I’m jumping on the bandwagon too….Fighting this Facebook algorithm change, because I’m noticing I am not seeing so many of my friends posts.
Here is how to avoid hearing from the same 26 FB friends and nobody else. This post explains why we don’t see all posts from our friends. Funny, I thought if I followed you on Facebook I would see what you post. Not anymore…..
Your newsfeed recently shows only posts from the same few people, about 25, repeatedly the same, because Facebook has a new algorithm….

Their system chooses the people who will read your posts. However I would like to choose for myself, therefore, I ask you all a favour- if you are reading this message leave me a quick comment, a “hey” or sticker, whatever you want, so you will appear in my newsfeed please!
Otherwise Facebook chooses who to show me and I don’t need Facebook to choose my friends.
Please copy and paste on your wall so you can have more interaction with all your contacts and bypass the system. That’s why we don’t see all posts from our friends.
Hold your finger down anywhere on this post and “copy” will pop up. Click “copy”. Then go to your page, start a new post on your page, then put your finger anywhere in the blank field. “Paste” will pop up and click on it to paste. Thank you all!

Don’t just “Like”, Facebook requires a “Comment”. Even one word! Thanks!!!
Otherwise Facebook chooses who to show me and instead I don’t need facebook to choose my friends!
Do not hesitate to copy and paste on your wall so you can have more interaction with all your contacts and bypass the system. That’s why we don’t see all posts from our friends!

Fact Check:

Various text messages doing rounds on Facebook from years suggest users to Copy and Paste the same on Wall to Bypass the Facebook News Feed Algorithm. It claims your Facebook News Feed shows only posts from the same 25/26 few people and not everyone. To circumvent the new Facebook algorithm, the message asks readers to react/comment on the post and copy and paste the message on their wall. Although popular, the claims are not facts and only carry a grain of truth.

Does Facebook News Feed Limit Posts You See?

The messages claim Facebook has implemented an algorithm change restricting the content you see on your New your News Feed to just 25/26 friends. Then they ask Facebook users to copy and paste the message and ask their friends to reply to the post. By doing so, they claim you can bypass the system of Facebook algorithm and see posts from all your friends. Note the messages are doing rounds in different versions and keep surfacing again on Facebook.

About the Facebook Algorithm

Facebook in fact has an algorithm to determine which of your friends you want to see content from and prioritize them in your news feed. Likewise, the posts you engage with appear more frequently along with posts of friends who have friends or interests in common. Unlike the messages claim, Facebook does not restrict it to only 25/26 friends not showing posts from others.

As a matter of fact, the messages are doing rounds as viral meme since at least January 2018. At the time The Washington Post inquired Facebook about it. A spokesperson replied: “Friends don’t let friends copy and paste memes, and this one simply is not true. We rank News Feed based on how relevant each post might be to you, and while we’ve made some updates that could increase the number of posts you see from your friends, your News Feed isn’t limited to 25 of them.”

So, Facebook is not restricting the content you see on your News Feed to just 25 or 26 friends. Moreover, there’s also the option of ‘News Feed preferences’ on desktop version of Facebook to prioritize manually who to see first in your News Feed. In this feature, you can pick a maximum of 30 people and pages to see first. Perhaps, the number 25/26 in the viral posts is coming from this feature.

On the other hand, there’s a grain of truth behind the claims. It is a fact, Facebook doesn’t show you all posts from all of your friends due to limit of space on site. So, it chooses few friends it thinks you’ll be most keen to hear from and engage with. This is the reason Facebook encourages people to interact with the kind of posts they like. It will know you are into those kinds of posts and push them up to the top of your feed.
