Zuckerberg Says that Meta Plans to Double the Amount of AI-Recommended Content in User Feeds

Don't like all those recommended posts? You're going to hate this. 

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, has announced disappointing earnings results with lower than expected usage and revenue. CEO Mark Zuckerberg highlighted the company's focus on Reels, the fastest-growing feature based on user engagement, and plans to increase AI-driven content recommendations, similar to TikTok's 'For You' feed. Despite user backlash and petitions, Meta intends to double the amount of recommended content in feeds, leading to more random posts and fewer updates from friends. Zuckerberg emphasized the importance of AI in enhancing user engagement and discussed monetization strategies for Reels ads. While some users may not appreciate the shift towards more recommended content and ads, Meta will continue to cater to user trends and preferences to maximize engagement. Ultimately, it is user habits that dictate the direction of these platforms, and Meta's approach aligns with evolving user behaviors.
