Facebook is tweaking its News Feed again to make it even more convenient for users. Facebook is currently testing a special feed just for news. This means that when users want to see uploads related to news, they can go to the special tab to check. That way, users are not interrupted or left behind in the main feed.
“News gives people more control over the stories they see, and the ability to explore more of their news interests, directly within the Facebook application,” Facebook said quoted from Ubergizmo, Saturday (10/26/2019).
Will Facebook Dedicated News Feed Potentially Adds Fuel to Hoaxes?
Facebook underlines, the news that will be displayed in this special feed only comes from legitimate or trusted sources. This is done to reduce the spread of fake news on their platforms even more.
“Facebook will include strict guidelines on how publications can appear in that section. This is done to reduce fake news that can be shared or appear in your main feed,” he said.
The Facebook dedicated news feed is currently in limited testing for those who live in the United States (US). So, those who haven’t seen it need not worry, it may come to your country soon.
As is known, currently News Feed contains uploads from anywhere such as family, friends, colleagues, pages or groups that users follow. Facebook is trying to use an algorithm to make News Feed as relevant as possible. But, because News Feed contains almost everything, it won’t be easy.
