Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has stated in the past that the main objective of Facebook is to provide its users with more convenience and control. Recently, users have been complaining about their news feed being flooded with countless posts that are not useful. To make Facebooking a lot more easier, users will be offered more control on the news feed.
With this upgraded News feed algorithm, users can now decide what they want to see and what they would rather ignore.
Features offer by the new Facebook news feed :
If you see a story that you are not interested in or don’t want to see, you can tap the arrow on the top right corner of that story and click on “I don’t want to see this”.
To see fewer stories from a particular person or brand in your news feed choose to see less from them.
You can also choose to “unfollow” them to stop seeing their stories and news feeds. Don’t worry you will still be friends and can always refollow them later, if you want to.
You can visit the news feed settings to see all friends, pages and groups you are following or haven’t followed.
You can see who you have seen the most from the last week.
You can also sort the following based on people, friends and groups. Unfollow friends, pages and groups if you don’t
want to see their news feeds.
Facebook users can also see whom they have unfollowed in the past and choose to re-follow them.
These are some of the really handy features offer by the “new Facebook news feeds”.
