This new Facebook parody video seems almost a little too real
Facebook has undergone a lot of changes lately. Chief among them is a new algorithm change that affects what users see and when they see it. The impending update, which will give more weight to updates from friends, has publishers shaking in their boots as many depend on Facebook to move traffic to their sites. If their articles and content aren’t showing up in Facebook user feeds as often, that means fewer readers and less advertising revenue.

Luckily, laughter is a good way to make it through this painful transition.
