As per the recent reports revealed, now Facebook allows its users to hide boring friends from their News Feed. Facebook is enduring CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s dream of turning the social networking site into “the ideal, personalized newspaper for everyone in the world” by giving users more control over their News Feed.
Facebook announced Friday that the company is adding up a new News Feed settings page that will show users, which people and pages they interact with most frequently and those they’ve recently unfollowed. The new setting will enable users to add and delete people and pages from the News Feed more easily based on user interest. Currently, this feature is available on the mobile and desktop versions of the site, and within the coming weeks, it will be available on the Facebook app too.
The gray arrows that pop up in the top right corners of the posts could help users to hide stories they’re not interested in reading. In that case, they can select whether they’d like to see less from that person or unfollow them altogether.
Facebook announced at the start of this year that it would start cracking down on clickbait and News Feed’s hyperbolic headlines by assessing how much time users spent reading a link and whether they were liking and sharing it.
