Facebook rolls out new controls to make unfollowing easier

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Annoyed with a Facebook friend for frequent but uninteresting posts, but don’t want to completely unfriend him or her?

Facebook may have a solution for that, as it rolled out this weekend additional controls that led users control what they see on their News Feeds.

“Unfollow any friend, Page or Group if you don’t want to see their stories in your News Feed. You can also see who you’ve unfollowed in the past and can choose to re-follow them at anytime,” product manager Greg Marra said in a blog post.

“If you see a story you’re not interested in or don’t want to see, you can tap the arrow in the top right of that story to hide it. Starting today, when you hide a story you’ll have the option to ask to see less from that person or Page,” he added.

Marra added News Feed settings will now show a list of the top people, Pages and Groups a Facebook user seen in his or her News Feed over the past week.

A user can choose to “sort by people, Pages or Groups posts, or see an overall summary,” he said.
If a user choose to see less feeds from a friend, he or she is given an option to unfollow them.

The News Feed settings will be available on desktop and mobile, though the new options for giving feedback about News Feed will be initially only be available on desktop. Joel Locsin/JDS, GMA News
