Social networking giant Facebook is offering its users with more options to filter their feeds and control what content they want to see on their wall post.
The social forum on Friday began rolling out the changes to allow its users to provide it with more feedback about whether they wish to see certain posts in their feeds, with the help of the tool “unfollow” friends.
In addition, Facebook is also going to provide the users with a new settings page that will allow the users to see which people, groups and pages have appeared prominently in their feeds, and whether they want to unfollow or re-follow them.
While announcing the changes, Facebook product manager Greg Marra, said, “What you do in news feed helps determine what you see in news feed.”
Earlier, the users were left with only one option to click on a dropdown arrow appearing in the top right corner of posts to unfollow the person or page or group and hide the post.
But the latest option will allow users to see less from the person or page and from where they can choose to unfollow or refollow them.
With the new unfollow option, a person can just disassociate themselves from any post or feed without alerting the related person when they are unfollowed. The posts will no longer appear in the feed of the user.
According to Facebook reports, the filtering options for hiding stories will commence rolling out for the desktop immediately, while it will arrive on mobile in the coming weeks.
