Facebook's posting strategies

It's no surprise that Facebook isn't interested in your news but in how long your readers will look at your updates (photos encourage enlarging and studying the picture), or whether they'll link from them. So that's what Facebook prioritises in your updates to friends' newsfeeds. The Daily Beast reverse engineered Facebook's strategies through a month's study to work this out. They sent the heuristics they discovered to Facebook for comment but, no surprise again, no reply.
