Facebook Delivering More High Quality Content In News Feed

I don't know about you but I think Facebook and I have a very different definition of "high quality content."

Today's update to News Feed ranking recognizes that people want to see more relevant news and what their friends have to say about it. Why are we doing this? Our surveys show that on average people prefer links to high quality articles about current events, their favorite sports team or shared interests, to the latest meme. Starting soon, we’ll be doing a better job of distinguishing between a high quality article on a website versus a meme photo hosted somewhere other than Facebook when people click on those stories on mobile. This means that high quality articles you or others read may show up a bit more prominently in your News Feed, and meme photos may show up a bit less prominently.
