Facebook Rolls Out New Ways to Customize Your Feed

Facebook is rolling out new features that enable users to customize their Facebook Feed by selecting the options ‘Show more’ or ‘Show less’ on a post to see more of what they want and less of what they don’t. Facebook is also going to start testing the new feature with Reels.

“Selecting Show more will temporarily increase the ranking score for that post and posts like it. If you select Show less, you’ll temporarily decrease its ranking score,” Meta said in a blog post. You can choose to Show more or Show less on posts by tapping into the three-dot menu in the upper right-hand corner.

A spokesperson from Facebook also added that the selections you make influence the posts you see for 60 days. The company says it chose this time frame because its research showed that people want these preferences to last for at least a few weeks, and also because Facebook wants to keep up with peoples’ changing preferences.

Facebook also said that it will periodically show this on posts in the Feed. The company is also exploring ways to personalize how much content users see in Feeds from friends and family, Groups, Pages, and public figures. “These tools, as well as Favourites, snooze and reconnect, can be found in Feed Preferences,” said Meta.

Features like these can help you discover more of the content that’s valuable to you, so you can see more of what you want and less of what you don’t.
