Facebook has announced that it is to give users greater control over what they see in their News Feed. The new options allow you to determine what kind of News Feed items are most important to you, such as which friends and pages you see first.
You will also be able to find new pages easily, and quickly unfollow people and pages to stop seeing their posts.
“Today we are announcing even better tools for you to actively shape and improve the experience. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve redesigned and expanded FacebookÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s News Feed Preferences to give you more control.”
To help prioritize stories, and make sure you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t miss posts from particular friends and Pages, you can now select which friends and Pages you would like to see at the top of your News Feed.
Helping you find new Pages to follow can help you connect with publishers, artists and businesses you might be interested in. Based on the types of Pages youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve liked in the past, you can discover new Pages in order to get more of the stories you care about.
With an updated design of the tools FacebookÃ‚Â previously launched, you can now see a list of the top people, Pages and groups that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen in your News Feed over the past week, and choose to unfollow any friend, Page or group if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to see their updates. You can also see who youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve unfollowed in the past and choose to re-follow them at any time.
The new ways to control your News Feed will be available today on iOS and will be rolling out on Android and desktop over the coming weeks.
