What is The Social Media Platform’s Algorithms?
Social media algorithms are a way of sorting posts in a users’ feed based on relevancy instead of publishing time. Social networks prioritize which content a user sees in their feed first by the likelihood that they’ll actually want to see it.
Facebook algorithm: The algorithm currently ranks the posts each user sees in the order that they’re likely to enjoy them, based on a variety of factors, a.k.a ranking signals. Facebook practices to decide what articles should be displayed in a user’s News Feed.
The new Instagram algorithm manages the order of the posts that users see when they’re scrolling through their feed. Based on specific signals, it prioritizes posts, pushing the most relevant ones towards the top and giving them the most visibility, while other content ends up being placed further down in one’s feed.
The Twitter algorithm prioritizes recent content and engaged users. It’s important to respond to any engagement your Tweet, and even your brand, receives as soon as possible, preferably in the first 2–3 hours.
Pinterest: The “Smart Feed” is Pinterest’s algorithm for arranging pins in the “Home Feed.” It determines what content people see and how each pin ranks in the feed. While Pinterest still rewards users who are frequent pinners, their algorithm now gathers a greater amount of data from each pin to filter out low-quality content.
By default, your LinkedIn feed is sorted by “Top Updates.” These posts are populated based on your activity (think: accounts you regularly interact with via “Likes,” shares, and comments).
