The latest Facebook update has made a lot of users very happy recently. The social media giant announced that users will now have even more control over the stories they see on their news feed.
On the iOS mobile platform (for iPhone users), you're now able to adjust whose posts you see at the top of your news feed. Facebook is working on Android and desktop versions of this update that are set to be released in a few weeks.
With this update, you can select from a list of the top people, pages and groups that you’ve seen in your news feed over the past week. You can also use this tool to unfollow any friend, page or group if you don’t want to see their updates.
If you accidentally delete or unfollow someone, you can pull up the list to see who you’ve unfollowed in the past and choose to re-follow them at any time. This helpful list function will allow you to be in complete control of where and what pops up on your Facebook news feed.
Any updates you missed will automatically be placed at the top of your feed, so you'll never miss another post from your favorite friend or Facebook page. I think this has been a long time coming - the algorithm Facebook uses to decide what news should go at the top of the feed is frustrating and now this update overrides it.
But what do you think? Will it make a difference in the stories you read or is it a lot of hype for nothing? Let me know by leaving a note below.
