Facebook announced this week that it is tweaking its news feed algorithm to emphasize posts from friends and family. But that change could cause Facebook users to see fewer posts from media companies like NBC 6.
Some viewers have asked how they can be sure to continue to receive local news they count on from NBC 6. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to guarantee you see everything from NBC 6.
Take these quick steps to be sure you still get Facebook posts from NBC 6 in your news feed.
Go to NBC 6’s Facebook page and be sure you’ve liked the page.
On your mobile device, click on "Following" and you receive three options. If you'd like to see every post from NBC 6, click "See First." If you'd prefer to see what the Facebook algorithm serves you, click "Default," and Facebook will show you posts based on how often you engage NBC 6's content.
On desktop, you can find the "See First" and "Default" options by clicking on the small arrow right next to the Like button.
To manage your notifications on your mobile device, click on the "More" button and then click down to "Notifications." There you can select which notifications you'd like to receive on the page.
On desktop to edit notifications, click on the small arrow to the right of the like button and select either all on or all off. You may also choose to receive specific notifications, such as videos and photos. To do so, click on the pencil next to the notifications button to select which post types you'd like to receive notifications for.
