Facebook is attempting to make News Feed ads even more relevant to users.
“When deciding which ad to show to which groups of people, we are placing more emphasis on feedback we receive from people about ads, including how often people report or hide an ad,” Facebook said in its announcement.
Facebook said advertisers will reap the benefits.
“If someone always hides ads for electronics, we will reduce the number of those types of ads that we show to them.” Facebook added that it’s “ultimately better for marketers, because it means their messages are reaching the people most interested in what they have to offer.”
Facebook said advertisers could see some distribution variation on ads in the coming weeks while the News Feed algorithm change rolls out.
This announcement is just one of many planned News Feed algo updates as the company promises to be more transparent about how it serves content.
