If you like getting your news on Facebook, changes to the social network's news feed algorithm could soon mean less access to articles, videos and photos from abc13 and other media companies.

The social network says it is re-tooling its site to show you more content shared from family and friends.

The change would mean you'll see less of the news you're used to seeing from Eyewitness News.

Follow these three easy steps to keep getting the latest news on Facebook:

1. Visit the abc13 Facebook page and make sure to 'Like' the page
