“We will begin implementing stricter demotions for Pages that systematically and repeatedly use engagement bait to artificially gain reach in News Feed”, Henry Silverman, Operations Integrity Specialist at Facebook, wrote in his blog post.

Facebook has recently launched a “snooze” feature that will allow users to mute a person’s posts for up to 30 days.
How much time do marketers have to change their ways? In an effort to increase exposure and visibility, many pages will post low-quality content with sensationalist headlines, urging users to click or share in hopes of expanding the reach of their page. As you’d expect, serial offenders will be hit hardest.
The function will be rolled out to all Facebook users this week. Posts that request likes, shares, tags, and comments will all be set further down in the news feed by the new algorithms. You can find this new feature via the top-right drop-down menu on a post.
