Facebook's current News Feed algorithm might be smarter, but some of its core considerations don't stray too far from the groundwork laid by EdgeRank, though thanks to machine learning, Facebook's current algorithm has a better ear for "signals from you."

These factors help Facebook display an average 300 posts culled from roughly 1,500 possible posts per day, per user.
