Facebook[3] Feed, a key feature of the social media[2] platform Facebook, has evolved significantly since its inception. Introduced in 2006, it originally faced backlash, leading to privacy[4] clarifications by CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The Feed, a primary screen on the app, showcases various content like articles, liked pages, and user activity. Its design and function have undergone multiple updates over the years, aiming to enhance user experience[1] and combat issues like clickbait. Today, it reaches approximately two billion users monthly and plays a crucial role in news dissemination, with 62% of US adults getting news from social media. However, it has also been linked to controversies like the Russian interference in the 2016 US election and the Cambridge Analytica scandal, raising questions about its role in spreading misinformation. Looking ahead, Facebook plans to prioritize local news and meaningful content in the Feed to address these concerns.

1. user experience. User Experience (UX) is a broad term that encompasses every aspect of an end-user's interaction with a company, its services, or its products. This includes users' perceptions and responses, both emotional and cognitive, during and after the use of a system, product, or service. User Experience also involves users' beliefs, preferences, and behaviors. While usability, a component of UX, focuses on the practical aspects of a system, UX incorporates a holistic view of system use. User experience is a vital factor in increasing brand loyalty and customer base growth. Its history dates back to the Machine Age, with notable contributions from figures like Frederick Winslow Taylor, Henry Ford, and Donald Norman. Today, technology advancements continue to shape and expand the field.Developer Experience (DX) is the analog of UX for software developers. It represents the experience developers have with the tools, processes, and software they use in their work. A high-quality DX can significantly impact the overall user experience, thus contributing to the success of the product. The importance of DX is increasingly recognized in the field of software services, where ease of use can serve as a key market differentiator.

They cater to over 100 million users globally and offer different forms of services, such as messaging apps and collaborative content creation platforms. The use of social media has far-reaching impacts on individuals, society, and businesses, influencing everything from marketing practices to political processes.
