Facebook Policy Change
A recent Facebook policy change garnered much attention in the social media world. The change will affect which posts users see in their Facebook news feed.
The social network says users informed them that public content is crowding out “the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.” According to users, Facebook “has shifted away from the most important thing Facebook can do–help us connect with each other.”
Facebook goes on to explain that “when we use social media to connect with people we care about it can be good for our well-being.”
Welcome to our world, Facebook
Here is how we’ve positioned Families Connect:
Looking For An Alternative To Facebook? Families Connect is unlike other social networks who are focused on short snippets of content. We focus on providing a tool for families to share meaningful content about their lives in a private environment. Start building your own private, online, social community.
Facebook seems to be waking up to the founding vision of Families Connect. People are looking for a user-defined environment to stay connected with those who matter most. Families Connect provides a private forum for doing just that.
A Facebook Alternative
So one option is to be patient and see if the Facebook leopard can change its spots. Or our preferred option: give Families Connect a try. What Facebook says it wants to become is what Families Connect has always been. Please visit our homepage and sign-up for the Families Connect application.
