Hi,

Since we cannot pay attention to all the posts in our feeds, algorithms determine what we see and what we don't. The algorithms used by social media platforms today are designed to prioritize engaging posts – ones we're likely to click on, react to and share. But a recent analysis found intentionally misleading pages got at least as much online sharing and reaction as real news.

(This comes from phys.org Misinformation on social media—can technology save us? on November 28, 2016 by Filippo Menczer.)

Does the blue part mean "posts that attract people's attention"?

Thanks in advance!

    Do you mean "ones we're likely to click on, react to and share"? I can understand it.
    But I can't understand why you say it explains "engaging posts". I still don't understand "engaging posts".
