What the Heck is the Facebook Algorithm

Do you find the whole Facebook Algorithm thing utterly confusing?

I know how you feel and it is something that's hard to keep up with since it's always changing.

  1. Affinity: how close is the relationship between the user and the content or its source?
  2. Weight: what type of action was taken on the content?
  3. Time Decay: how current is the content—how recently was it posted?
