Question 1
Directions for Questions 1-6:Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.How Facebook is changing the way we consume newsGreg Marra’s team designs the code that drives Facebook’sNews Feed – the stream of updates, photographs, videos and stories that users see. The 26-year-old Facebook engineer is also fast becoming one of the most influential people in the news business. Facebook now has a fifth of the world – about 1.3 billion people – logging on at leastmonthly. It drives up to 20 percent of traffic to news sites, according to figures from the analytics company SimpleReach. On mobile devices, the fastest-growing source of readers, the percentage is even higher,SimpleReach says.About 30 percent of adults in the U.S. get their news onFacebook, according to a study from the Pew ResearchCenter. Though other services, like Twitter and GoogleNews, can also exert a large influence, Facebook is at theforefront of a fundamental change in how people consume journalism. Most readers now come to news not through theprint editions of newspapers and magazines or their homepages online, but through social media and search engines driven by an algorithm, a mathematical formula that predicts what users might want to read.It is a world of fragments, filtered by code and delivered ondemand. For news organizations, said Cory Haik, senior editor for digital news at The Washington Post, the shift represents “the great unbundling” of journalism. “Peoplewon’t type in washingtonpost.com anymore,” Ms. Haik said“It’s search and social.” In an interview at Facebook’s sprawling headquarters here, Mr. Marra said he does not think too much about his impact on journalism. “We try to explicitly view ourselves as not editors,” he said. “We don’t want to have editorial judgment over the content that’s in your feed. You’ve made your friends, you’ve connected to the pages that you want to connect to and you’re the best decider for the things that you care about.”Mr. Marra said, “We’re saying ‘We think that of all the stuff you’ve connected yourself to, this is the stuff you’d be most interested in reading.’”Roughly once a week, he and his team of about 16 adjust the complex computer code that decides what to show a user when he or she first logs on to Facebook. The code is based on “thousands and thousands” of metrics, Mr. Marra said, including what device a user is on, how many comments or likes a story has received and how long readers spend on an article. The goal is to identify what users most enjoy, and its results vary around the world.
