Facebook’s revived news feed filters
Posted by pratyushkp
The most popular social networking site on date has unveiled the new way to filter news feed. This new feature which was available to only limited users is now available to all its users. As users must be aware, the news feed section had a limited options. One being Top News and the other recent stories. But now it has a list of options that includes choosing to see stories only from a specific Group of friends. There is also a live feed setting wherein the user can determine whether they want to see more or fewer stories from a specific user. Other improvements include status Updates showing a stream of imageless updates from your friends, several links focusing on status updates, photos displaying only posts with images, and Pages only showing the users updates from Pages as opposed to persons on Facebook.
In a nutshell, facebook has been redesigned to cut down on the things that users are not interested in and to show them more of the content that they want to see more often.
