You Now Have More Control Over What You See In Your Facebook News Feed

Facebook is making it easier to control who and what comes up in your News Feed.

At the moment, what you see is based on how much you interact with a page or person - that's doing things like liking a status update, or commenting on a video or photo.

If you keep clicking into someone's page for a nose (even if you don't like to admit it), that'll bump them up your feed too.

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.

Facebook says it's "always working to improve and personalize your News Feed experience. We know that ultimately you’re the only one who truly knows what is most meaningful to you and that is why we want to give you more ways to control what you see."


You can now select which friends and pages you would like to see at the top of your News Feed, as well as reconnecting with people or pages you might have forgot you unfollowed. "You can also see who you’ve unfollowed in the past and choose to re-follow them at any time", is how Facebook puts it.


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.
