Tinkering with Facebooks’ EdgeRank Algorithm

by Santosh

Ever since Facebook announced their EdgeRank algorithm, I’ve been tracking developments as closely as an independent might. I consider EdgeRank to be under-studied, especially when compared to the Algorithms that drive SEO on Google search. Considering that Google’s search Algorithm determines what URL’s you will see, and EdgeRank determines what posts you will see on your news feed, you’d think they were equally important in determining how interactions on the web work.

Mike Maghsoudi of PostRocket has posted an informative infographic on EdgeRank and what they currently know about it. PostRocket are in the business of visibility on Facebook and are by definition students of EdgeRank. I’m following them in the hope that they’ll reveal more about EdgeRank than what meets the eye. Here it is with Mike’s blessings.
