More Control and Context in News Feed
Control What You Share
Today we’re introducing a new tool to give you more control over what you share to News Feed by managing who can comment on your public posts.
Control What You See
We recently launched Favorites, a new tool where you can control and prioritize posts from the friends and Pages you care about most in News Feed. By selecting up to 30 friends and Pages to include in Favorites, their posts will appear higher in ranked News Feed and can also be viewed as a separate filter. People who use Favorites frequently can access it from the Feed Filter Bar, a new menu at the top of News Feed.
The Feed Filter Bar offers easier access to Most Recent too, making it simpler to switch between an algorithmically-ranked News Feed and a feed sorted chronologically with the newest posts first. Android app users can access the Feed Filter Bar when they scroll up on News Feed.
Understand Why You See Suggested Posts in News Feed
To help you discover new and relevant content, we suggest posts in your News Feed from places like Pages and Groups that you don’t already follow, but we think you may be interested in. These post suggestions are primarily based on factors such as post engagement, related topics, and location.
Today, we’re also providing more context around the content we suggest in News Feed by expanding “Why am I seeing this?.” This means that you’ll be able to tap on posts from the friends, Pages, and Groups you follow as well as some of the posts we suggest to you and get more context on why they’re appearing in your News Feed.
