Facebook post promising better access to friends is likely a hoax

If your Facebook feed shows a post indicating you can override the system's algorithm to make your posts visible to more than 25 friends, a local computer expert says don't take it at face value.  Nathan Drager, co-owner of Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay, says Facebook does have algorithms that help tailor pages, ads and feeds to your interests.  He says that's to eliminate information flow overload.  Drager says he finds it hard to believe, however, that Facebook on its own would attempt to limit how many friends see your posts.



Drager says such posts seem to increase every time Facebook makes changes to its services that prove to be unpopular to some users.
