Facebook updates News Feed with a dedicated settings page, give users more control over what they see
Facebook is out to rectify that after it released updates to its News Feed algorithm, this time giving users more control over what will appear on their feeds. These updates are applicable for both the desktop as well as mobile apps. The update will also give users insights into why certain posts appear on their news feed and give them the choice to filter these posts. The rollout has started gradually, so don’t sweat if you still don’t see any changes immediately.
You will see a new settings page dedicated just for News Feed. Using this page, you can analyse which pages and people take up the most space on your News Feed and then be provided with an option to Unfollow these people without Unfriending them.
While the Unfollow option has been around for quite a while now, you now get additional options in the dropdown present at the top right hand corner of each post. Apart from ‘Unfollow’ and ‘I don’t want to see this’, you will now also get the option ‘See less’.
