Facebook users on the network are constantly sharing images and videos with friends and strangers around the world, often in a frenzy of activity that sometimes reaches fever pitch.
Here’s how to spot an overload of activity on the social network.
A few years ago, Facebook started making its newsfeeds a little bit bigger by adding a couple hundred photos and videos a day, but it’s taken some time for the service to catch up with its competition.
Since then, Facebook has added over 1,000 new photos and video to its feed, but its still a relatively small percentage of its daily photos and its videos.
Facebook’s newsfeed now has over 1.2 million photos and 1.4 million videos.
The site now shows users the total number of images and video shared and the number of people in the feed, and has started counting how many times a post was shared or viewed.
Facebook also recently added a new feature that allows users to tag a post with their friends, so that their friends can see the same content as they.
As for what’s happening in social networks’ newsfeed, the new data will help Facebook determine what is going on with its platform and which stories to prioritize.
In the meantime, we’re happy to see that Facebook is taking some action to curb the spookiness of its platform.
Update: We have added a correction to the headline.
A previous version of this article incorrectly referred to a Facebook spokeswoman as an employee.
