Facebook just made an announcement that might cheer many people up – More Ways to Control What You See in Your News Feed!
Greg Marra, Facebook Product Manager explains that starting of 7th November 2014 there will be more ways for you to control and give feedback on your News Feed.
Quickly Unfollow and re-follow people, Pages and Groups
News Feed settings will now show a list of the top people, Pages and Groups that you’ve seen in your News Feed over the past week. You can choose to sort by people, Pages or Groups posts, or see an overall summary. Unfollow any friend, Page or Group if you don’t want to see their stories in your News Feed. You can also see who you’ve unfollowed in the past and can choose to re-follow them at anytime.
New ways to give feedback about your News Feed
If you see a story you’re not interested in or don’t want to see, you can tap the arrow in the top right of that story to hide it. Starting today, when you hide a story you’ll have the option to ask to see less from that person or Page.
If you choose to see less, you are then given the option to unfollow them if you don’t want to see any of their stories in your News Feed. You can always visit News Feed settings to see everything you’ve unfollowed and have the option to re-follow them.
News Feed settings will be available starting today on desktop and mobile. The new options for giving feedback about your News Feed will be available today on desktop, and coming to mobile in the coming weeks. For more information, visit Facebook Help Center.
