Facebook announced this week that it is introducing new features that will give users greater control over their News Feeds, as well as who comments on their content.
One of these new features will allow users to filter their News Feed content through “Favorites” and “Recent,” ensuring people only see what they want from who they want. This will also create a more chronological feed of content, similar to the interface of Facebook-owned Instagram. Additionally, the social media giant is giving users control over who can comment on public-facing posts.
“By adjusting your commenting audience, you can further control how you want to invite conversation onto your public posts and limit potentially unwanted interactions,” Facebook product manager Ramya Sethuraman wrote in a blog post announcing the change. “And if you’re a public figure, creator or brand, you too can choose to limit your commenting audience on your public posts to help you feel safe and engage in more meaningful conversations with your community.”
In the grand scheme of things, these are fairly minor changes. But still, it’s never a bad thing for users to get more control over their account settings.
