Over the years, Facebook’s News Feed algorithm has gone through the numerous changes to collate the most relevant content. Today the social media giant has introduced an update developed to give you more control on what you see in News Feed.
Now Facebook’s News Feed Preferences show three additional options for filtering through the content you check when you arrive on the website or open an app.
Prioritize Pages & Friends – decide which pages and friends you usually prefer to see content from. They will be seen in News Feed.
Follow/ Unfollow – Stay attached without un-friending people with Facebook’s updated unfollow/follow tool. Unfollowing somebody simply prevents them from being seen in News Feed.
Explore New Pages – Look for more pages to follow based on the form of pages you have specified you like referring content from.
You will be able to adjust these settings at any time just by going to the settings under News Feed Preferences section. From today, the update will be available on iOS and soon on Android.
