06:30 EDTFBFacebook says reducing 'overly promotional' page posts in news feed
Facebook said on Friday that "Our goal with News Feed has always been to show people the things they want to see. That’s why we often look to people on Facebook to tell us how we can improve. As part of an ongoing survey we asked hundreds of thousands of people how they feel about the content in their News Feeds. People told us they wanted to see more stories from friends and Pages they care about, and less promotional content. What we discovered is that a lot of the content people see as too promotional is posts from Pages they like, rather than ads. This may seem counterintuitive but it actually makes sense: News Feed has controls for the number of ads a person sees and for the quality of those ads, but those same controls haven’t been as closely monitored for promotional Page posts. Now we’re bringing new volume and content controls for promotional posts, so people see more of what they want from Pages.... Beginning in January 2015, people will see less of this type of content in their News Feeds. This change will not increase the number of ads people see in their News Feeds. The idea is to increase the relevance and quality of the overall stories – including Page posts – people see in their News Feeds. This change is about giving people the best Facebook experience possible and being responsive to what they have told us. While Pages that post a lot of the content we mention above will see a significant decrease in distribution, the majority of Pages will not be impacted by this change." Reference Link

05:55 EDTKKRKKR, CITIC Limited jointly invest in United Envirotech
CITIC Limited and KKR jointly announce the formation of a consortium through related entities, CITIC Environment Protection Co. Ltd. and KKR China Water Investment Holdings Limited respectively, to make a pre-conditional voluntary offer, or VGO, for all the shares in United Envirotech, or UEL. The transaction allows CITIC to become the controlling shareholder of UEL through the holding of a majority interest in the consortium. This will be achieved by the consortium through the VGO subject to conditions being met, to acquire existing shares in UEL from the existing shareholders including KKR. In addition, after the VGO, the consortium will subscribe for further shares in UEL by way of a private placement totalling SGD50M, SGD100M or SGD150M which will provide additional capital to UEL. The offer price values UEL at approximately SGD1.9B on fully diluted basis. The consortium intends to maintain the listing status of UEL post transaction.
