08:33 EDTORCL, AKAM, FB, LLNW, GOOGLimelight, Akamai case sets precedent supported by Google, others, WSJ says
In a move that was urged by tech heavyweights Google (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Oracle (ORCL), the Supreme Court restored prior legal rules that were loosened when a U.S. appeals court sided with Akamai (AKAM) over Limelight Network (LLNW), said The Wall Street Journal. In yesterday's previously reported ruling in favor of Limelight, the high court declined to make it easier to hold companies liable for encouraging others to commit patent infringement, the Journal said.

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
