New Newsfeed Coming To Facebook!
Facebook has announced that it is allowing users to choose between seeing their newsfeed according to the current the algorithmic system, or the full feed arranged in reverse chronological order. The company has announced the “News Feed Filter Bar” option, which makes it easier for users to switch between the regular News Feed, curated by Facebook’s notorious algorithm, and either a ‘Favorites’ or ‘Recent’ listing of posts, the latter of which is pretty much a reverse-chronological feed. Favorites allows users to select up to 30 friends and pages to include in your priority listing, with posts from those that you choose then highlighted with a badge. According to Facebook, these changes will give Facebookers better control of their relationship with the algorithm, and help cut down on divisive content.
