Yesterday, Facebook launched one new News Feed settings tool, which will help you to quickly unfollow the pages and people without unliking or unfriending them. You can do this just by checking the latest News Feed setting area, where you will find a list of top pages, people, and groups, which you haven’t seen in the news feed for a long time. If you don’t wish to see them anymore then just click on unfollow button and get rid of them. Here, you can also check your previously unfollowed pages, profiles and if you want you can immediately follow them once again.
There is one more new setting update rolled out by Facebook that now whenever you will hide any post from your News Feed, you can inform Facebook that you have done it because of the author of the content or, the person or page who has shared it or mentioned in the app. If you don’t want to see it in news feed then Facebook will give you the option to unfollow.
Advice From Facebook For Marketers –
Whenever, Facebook launches something like this, they do it only after taking feedback from the users and rank the content in the news feed accordingly. If users unfollow your page or hide it from their news feed then it ultimately leaves a negative impact on your page’s organic reach. Therefore, it would be recommended for the pages to not to post annoying content.
From today itself, these new settings will be activated on desktop & mobile.
