Facebook users, sweeping changes are coming in the next few weeks.

After saying his personal challenge for 2018 was fixing Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, revealed a big overhaul Friday to the "news feed.”

After more than a year under fire for how it delivers information to users.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announcing what he's calling a "major change" to the newsfeed.

Here’s what you can expect to see:

MORE posts, photos, videos from your friends and family.

That means LESS content from businesses, brands and fewer news articles too.

Zuckerberg predicts you'll spend less time on Facebook as a result and says this will be "good for people's well-being."

The move comes after a barrage of criticism including Facebook's founding president accusing the company of creating an intentionally addictive product.

And accusations that Facebook did not do enough to stop Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which Zuckerberg addressed last year.

We’re hoping to bring Facebook to an even higher standard of transparency 

More than 2 billion people use Facebook every month.

That's more than the population of China and the US combined.

Zuckerberg says he is making these changes to "encourage meaningful interactions between people."

But in an exclusive interview, former Facebook manager Sandy Parakilas tells us the company is not doing enough.

And investors may not be happy with the changes to the newsfeed.

The Facebook stock on Friday dropped (currently down 4%).

We've had a mostly sunny valley with a few more clouds over the mountains today, but it's been another beautiful day with warmer highs than yesterday. Much warmer weather is headed our way this weekend... enjoy, but stay cool!
