Wired’s Nick Thompson: Facebook needs to pivot news feed to quality

Nick Thompson, editor-in-chief of Wired, recently co-authored a story on how the 2016 election shook Facebook and catapulted them into an identity crisis. As he investigated this story over two years, it refined his own digital strategy and views towards Facebook’s role in the business of news.

“The fundamental thing I want Facebook to do is change news feed so that it rewards quality content,” said Thompson on this week’s episode of the Digiday Podcast. “If you write a story that isn’t on the moment, it will not travel on Facebook, even if it makes people feel informed and educated. By changing the way news feed is measured and changing the data points that go into creating the news feed, I hope the news feed is where quality thrives — focusing on time well-spent, prioritizing trust-worthiness, informed-ness, quality content.”

Thompson discusses the story, what it means when the world of Silicon Valley collides with Washington, why he remains optimistic about Facebook’s interests aligning with publishers’ interests, and more.
