Zuckerberg announced that the latest Facebook news tweak would cut down even more things you don’t want to see on your news feed. As of now, your personal newsfeed will remain pristine, not being pilfered any longer by annoying clickbait-like articles or content you do not wish to view.
In order to keep up with the times, Facebook has decided that it’s high time to do a little spring (or rather summer) cleaning. After much consideration, Zuckerberg and his team have decided that the newsfeed section is not entirely facing up to its expectations.
Thus, they have decided that a new newsfeed search algorithm is in order. The latest Facebook news tweak launched by Facebook will really help you wish away all the content you don’t want to see.
Still annoyed by clickbait articles like: “You won’t believe what a well-known actor did. Click to read the full story”? Say no more, because Facebook has you covered. With the latest Facebook news tweak, you will be able to tell Facebook what you like and what you don’t like.
According to Facebook, if the user doesn’t like to follow the posts of a particular company or individual, he or she can only tell Facebook to make it all go away. The same thing applies to news-related articles.
This whole garden trimming started back in 2013 when Zuckerberg felt that Facebook doesn’t look like a tool at all, but rather as a distraction or something to occupy your time with. After a complete makeover, Facebook has turned into one the most powerful tools on the web, meaning that you can use it for other things then stalking your neighbor.
So, why the new makeover? The latest Facebook news tweak was created in order to cut down even further on posts and content that are not within your area of interest. For example, with the new algorithm, you will be able to instruct Facebook to show you only posts from family and friends and hide all other content.
But was it worth the effort? While most of Zuckerberg’s followers declared that the new algorithm is incredible, this new move is not without its detractors who claim that the Facebook news tweak is as useless as the other attempts to cosmeticize the social media platform.
It remains to be seen whether the latest Facebook new tweak will be of some use, or if it’s only a smoke curtain.
