Facebook does a lot of things, but it’s still primarily a social media site. Site. You just scroll through a feed comprised of news updates, advertisements, and of course, users’ status updates. Now, Facebook announced that it’s changing the name of its News Feed.

The Facebook News Feed is changing its name

For some reason, Facebook felt that this was necessary to change. The News Feed is where most people spend their time on Facebook. They scroll through statuses, pictures, and other forms of media that people create.

Now, via a tweet from the official Facebook Twitter account, the company announced that its News Feed will simply be called Feed. It seems weird that Facebook would make this change, but there may be some solid reasoning behind it.


The News Need launched around 15 years ago. Back then, social media wasn’t as much of a thing as it is now, so the concept of a feed was not as ubiquitous. This means that Facebook needed to highlight that it was a news feed where you can get the latest updates.

Nowadays, social media is much more prevalent in our lives, and the feed is no longer a new concept. This means that Facebook does not need to call it a news feed. If it simply calls it a feed, people will know exactly what you’re talking about.

In Other Facebook news: Facebook will not be removed from Europe

While Facebook changing the name of the news feed is definitely hot news, one developing story has been just a bit more pressing. Recently, Meta has been hitting the headlines as news pointed to the company withdrawing from Europe.


That would mean that European countries but not be able to use Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, or WhatsApp. That would have been a big blow to any person or company using those services on a regular basis.
There’s uncertainty regarding the old transatlantic privacy agreement between the United States and the European Union. This, many think, is the reason that Facebook might have been leaving Europe.

However, the company stated that Meta has no interest in leaving the European Union at all. That could either be a true statement, or Facebook just trying to assuage the situation until it can come to a reasonable conclusion.
Facebook is no stranger to taking resistance from other parties. Most of the issues it faces are from other countries not liking the company’s stance on privacy. This is a developing story, so we expect to get more updates as time goes on.
