The new options allow a Facebook user to determine what kind of News Feed items are most important to his/her account, such as which friends and pages he/she sees first.
Users will also be able to find new pages easily, and quickly unfollow people and pages to stop seeing their posts.
Jacob Frantz, who is the New Feed manager, said:
“With an updated design of the tools we previously launched, you can now see a list of the top people, Pages and groups that you’ve seen in your News Feed over the past week, and choose to unfollow any friend, Page or group if you don’t want to see their updates. You can also see who you’ve unfollowed in the past and choose to re-follow them at any time.”
To get to News Feed Preferences, tap more in the bottom right hand corner of your mobile app. News Feed Preferences are located under Settings. You can come back at any time to update your choices.
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.
