In 2014, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg described the News Feed during his first-ever public question-and-answer session by saying, “Our goal is to build the perfect personalized newspaper for every person in the world. We’re trying to personalize it and show you the stuff that’s going to be most interesting to you.”
At that time, News Feed wasn't primarily being populated by what friends share. Rather, Facebook Pages, those run by media companies and brands, had taken over. That sat fine with Zuckerberg. As he said later in the session, “If you’re a business owner thinking about how to use your free page on Facebook, I would just focus on trying to publish really good content that’s going to be compelling to your customers and the people that are following you.”
