Hi, I’m Upworthy’s Copy Chief. I come from the journalism world, with years of experience on the copy desks of major newspapers. It’s my job to make sure you can trust everything we post to the site.
Some of the things we curate at Upworthy seem almost too crazy or shocking or good to be true —…

Steve Hart reported on Relevanza blog about Facebook’s changes to the Newsfeed and its implication for visibility of shared links. We also notice changes in the comment section when we discovered threaded comments on AAUW posted link to a tribute to Admiral Grace Murray Hopper starting computer science education week with female role models….
Back to Facebook comments, first change you’ll notice is that the empty comment box with your own avatar has been moved from the bottom of the comment section to the top, trying to incite you to join the conversation without scrolling to the end of the comments. The default view is a collapsed comment view with main comments and the number of replies for each.
On to right top you also see a link giving you a choice to see “Recent activities” or “Top comments”, the Facebook way to gauge automatically relevance of posted content. Be aware that you might not see the last posted comments but those that have a higher relevance, judged by Facebook’s robots. If you are late to a conversation, this certainly might help you to get through the comment threads faster. If you are an active participant on a Post’s comment section, it might get confusing, as you need to make sure you read the “recent activities” stream instead of the top comments. It remains to be seen if the relevance algorithm is actually helpful or just another way to confuse users by making something more complex as it might need to be.
It’s remains to be seen if there are any changes made to the insights for Facebook pages regarding measuring engagement levels and posting stats. How do you feel about Facebook threaded comments?

Sometimes I get appalled at the fact that people say, ‘What’s the point in going to space? It’s of no use. Why are we spending so much money?’ and I think: ‘Bloody hell! Everyone in the world can now know where they are!’ A tiny box that lets you know exactly where you are on the planet, or another tiny box that lets you talk to anyone in the world. And we don’t think about it, we think it’s just like God gave it to us. — In a conversation on technology, fantasy and reality, Terry Pratchett echoes Isaac Asimov’s witty retort to those who question why we should spend money on space exploration.

Yahoo’s new logo has arrived
Unveiled last night on the firm’s Tumblr after a month-long logo-a-day campaign, it’s—well, it’s not that different from the old one. A little bit more serious, perhaps, but still with that delicious screamer at the end of it. And what does the second, larger O signify? It’s playful, says one Yahoo employee—the CEO.
