The feed will be much larger in size and will enable people to choose different filters to display such as just photos, just videos or, critically for marketers, just friends. Whilst there is an option to filter for ‘just following’, where users can filter to see all brand page updates, if the ‘just friends’ feed gains popularity, marketers will be forced to pay to reach all people who have liked their page.
