How to Change Your News Feeds On Facebook – If I were to ask you, how many times have you visited Facebook today? You probably won’t be able to give me a stable answer because you’ve been there a lot of times than you can remember.
What if I changed the question and asked how many of those unaccounted times have you enjoyed scrolling through posts on Facebook? Not so much I guess. Facebook is a wonderful social media platform with a lot of people.
NewsFeed On Facebook
Basically, when you visit Facebook, you want to see feeds from your family and friends or content that are interesting to you. But there are times when you sign in to your Facebook account and you see posts from people you don’t know or from long-lost acquaintances. It can also be videos, ads, or pictures that do not interest you in any way.
Facebook tends to change and rotate the kinds of contents in its user’s feeds from time to time so these things are always bound to happen. There’s a way to get the best out of your Facebook newsfeed experience and that’s what this guide is going to be about.
How to Moderate the Contents On Your Facebook NewsFeed
Contents on your newsfeed are gotten from different activities on Facebook. It can be from a Facebook group you joined, a Facebook page or account you follow, or constantly interact with on Facebook.
Sign in to your Facebook account and visit the hamburger menu at the top right corner.
- Select “Groups” from the menu. Click on “Groups” on the menu by the left if you are using the Facebook web version on a computer.
- Next, choose “Your Groups”. Locate the group you joined that’s always bringing up uninteresting content to your newsfeed.
- Tap or click on the Settings icon and choose “Leave Group”.
- In the hamburger menu, tap on “Pages”.
- Then select “Liked Pages” on the menu at the top.
- Locate the page whose feeds are uninteresting to you and unlike them by re-tapping on the “Like” button. Unfollow the pages if you deem it necessary.
Most of the time when your newsfeed is filled with a Facebook friend’s post, it’s because you follow them on Facebook.
- In the hamburger menu, tap on “Friends” > “All Friends”.
- Locate a Facebook friend whose post constantly disturbs your newsfeed.
- Tap or click on the three dots next to the friend’s name.
- Select “Unfollow”. Choose to “Unfriend” if it’s an extreme case.
Furthermore, when you come across content on your Facebook feeds that you do not like, tap on the three dots in the upper right corner of the post. Then choose to “Hide Post From Menu”.
Facebook News Feed Settings
This alternative is easy and very fast. It’s just as effective as the guide above but way faster to orchestrate.
Open the Facebook hamburger menu and tap on “Settings & Privacy” > “Settings”. Then scroll down and select “News Feed Preferences” under the “News Feed Settings” category.
Here you can Prioritize whose posts to see first, Unfollow people to stop seeing their posts, reconnect with people you unfollow, and do so much more to make your feeds unique to you on Facebook.
