How to manage your Facebook News Feed preferences
Facebook now lets users control people who can comment on their posts. Users can pick between ‘Public’, ‘Friends’ and ‘Profiles and Pages you mention’ options.
Facebook today released a major update on its platform. The company today released new features on its News Feed that are aimed at giving greater control over what they see and share on Facebook's platform.
For starters, Facebook now lets users control people who can comment on their posts. Users can pick between ‘Public', ‘Friends' and ‘Profiles and Pages you mention' options. The company has also introduced a new Favorites tool that lets users control and prioritise their posts from friends and Pages that they care about the most. Additionally, there is a Feed Filter Bar that makes it easier for users to switch between an algorithmically-ranked News Feed and a feed that is sorted chronologically with the newest posts first.
Facebook says that users can update what they want to see and how they share information on their News Feeds by making the necessary changes in the News Feed preferences and Privacy Settings in the app.
