Facebook wants to know who your best friends are

Facebook wants to keep News Feed relevant.

The social network is tweaking its News Feed algorithm to try and show more posts from your closest friends. In order to do that, though, the company is taking a somewhat new approach: asking users to straight-up tell them who their best friends are.
