Facebook Explains Its News Feed Ranking System

First of all, we roll a 20 sided dice (which doesn't really do anything, we just like rolling dice). Then, we mix in ads from any ol' company that gives us money. Sprinkle in some crazy "doctors don't want you to know this secret" ads and top it all off with two thousand posts from the most annoying people you know....over and over and over. Did I mention ads? cool

Today we are announcing an update to the News Feed ranking algorithm. Now organic stories that people did not scroll down far enough to see can reappear near the top of News Feed if the stories are still getting lots of likes and comments.
