A few of the reports suggest that the Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is working on to reduce the number of advertisements user see in their News Feed. The social networking giant on Friday said that the company is going to revamp the entire News Feed to show fewer advertisements.

Users have always been annoyed by the increased number of ads that are being displayed in the timeline. It comes as if the updates from their favourite pages, groups and friends is moved out of the Feed. Facebook on Friday said that they are now going to make a move that makes the News Feed even better, and without much of advertisements.


With the start of a new year, 2015, users will be able to see less number of advertisements that are based on their Internet activity. On a personal level, the ads we see in the News Feed are sometimes more of a nuisance. They cover the space that can be filled with a great stories or updates from our friends.

“People told us they wanted to see more stories from friends and pages they care about, and less promotional content,” the social networking giant said in a blog post.


According to Facebook, the change is a result of the survey the company has been taking for the last few months. The users didn’t show a warm welcome to the ads. However, what’s surprising here would be that the company will be earning somewhat less than by display less number of the advertisements. Calling it an advertisement company or social networking website, Facebook is supposedly going to face some loss in revenue.
