Facebook’s Feed Now Punishes Pages That Ask For Likes Or Share Reruns. Share unique, interesting content and you’ll be fine! Thanks for keeping it real Facebook!

You’re not clever enough to fool Facebook. Asking users to “Like this post!”, sharing the same link or photo over and over, or bait-and-switching people with links to ad-filled sites will now get your Page’s reach in News Feed destroyed, the company said today. Share unique, interesting content and you’ll be fine.

Any user can share their screen to the group at any time, and documents can also be shared to the group with a few clicks. There are even lots of snazzy effects that can add functionality, fun, or both to a standard video chat. And the best part of all? It’s absolutely FREE.
